DESCRIPTION : This is a 6 hour training geared to help you the child welfare worker understand the spectrum of Anxiety Disorders and how this impacts your work with families where the disorder exists.

    • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
    • Panic Disorder
    • Phobias
    • And the sub-category of hoarding
  • Understand the co-morbidity with depression

  • Gain knowledge of the treatment options and realistic outcomes of the child welfare family/client

  • Understand these symptoms at all stages of life; children, adolescents and adults

  • Understand the seemingly increase in hoarding (animal and material) and its link to anxiety disorders

  • Create a realistic case plan for one of your current cases (this will be your action plan).
