The Yale Child Study Center’s Anxiety and Mood Disorders Program will be holding the seventh Annual Spotlight on Anxiety Forum for Concerned Parents and Professionals on Thursday, April 29 via Zoom. This year’s theme is Inside Out: Anxiety from Self to Society.
The forum will provide attendees with cutting-edge, clinically informed information about the manifestation of anxiety within children’s bodies and out in their environments. Topics will include parenting stress, mindfulness, child health outcomes, child and family worry, bullying, culture, and peace.
The forum counts as 5 Continuing Education credit hours by NASW/CT and meets criteria for licensure renewal for LCSWs, LMFTs, LPCs, and Licensed Psychologists.

The Anxiety and Mood Disorders Program at the Yale Child Study Center offers comprehensive evaluations and treatments for children and adolescents ages 6 to 14 years. Services are provided at no cost to families who agree to participate in research but can otherwise be provided for a fee (with a sliding scale plan also available).
The program treats a range of anxiety disorders and fears, such as excessive worrying, social anxiety, difficulties or refusal to speak to other children or adults outside the child’s immediate family, separation anxiety, anxiety relating to school (e.g., taking tests, speaking in class, attending school, etc.), and specific fears (e.g., heights, dogs, thunder, etc.).
The program is currently conducting two large clinical trials to treat childhood anxiety. Call 203-737-4644 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the Anxiety and Mood Disorders Program at the Yale Child Study Center.
