Assessment and Treatment Strategies for Mood and Anxiety Disorders

October 14, 2020

1:00pm - 2:30pm EST | 12:00pm - 1:30pm CST | 11:00am - 12:30pm MST

In collaboration with the New York Presbyterian Youth Anxiety Center, we are proud to present a clinically based webinar training series designed primarily for campus based mental health providers. This training will focus on evidence based practices, strategies, and supports for use with college-aged youth as they return to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This 90 minute intensive workshop will focus on best practices for working with young adults. The workshop format will consist of one hour of training with 30 minutes of experiential activity and Q & A. This workshop will be limited to 25 participants.
