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 free, 90-minute intensive workshop will consist of one hour of training with 30 minutes of experiential activity and Q & A. This workshop will be limited to 25 participants.
