    Presentation Information

    Treating Anxiety in Youth: Clinical Strategies within Empirically Supported Programs - Philip Kendall, PhD, ABPP

    The presentation will provide an initial description of the theory that guides intervention and an overview of when anxiety is developmentally reasonable and when it is disordered. Cognitive, behavioral, family (parenting) and emotional factors will be addressed. The bulk of the presentation will address intervention strategies and their evaluations, and how what has been learned can be put into practice. A flexible implementation of manual-based approaches will be described and encouraged. Research outcomes that inform decisions regarding the provision of clinical services for anxious youth will be considered and these findings highlight both (a) what we know and (b) what we do not yet know about the treatment of anxiety disorders in youth.

    CE Learning Objectives

    At the completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. More accurately identify and assess anxiety disorders in youth
    2. Describe how to better implement the clinical (applied) utility of the findings from numerous research evaluations of treatments for anxiety disorders in youth
    3. Identify the differential merits of various mental health interventions and services for youth suffering from anxiety disorders

    His accomplishments are numerous: 650+ publications (including 35+ books and 20+ treatment manuals and workbooks translated into over a dozen languages) and 35+ years of uninterrupted grant support from various agencies (i.e., NIMH, NICHD, MacArthur Foundation). He is widely cited, and among an elite handful of the most frequently-cited individuals in all of the social and medical sciences. In a recent quantitative analysis of the publications by and citations to all members of the faculty in the 157 APA-approved programs in clinical psychology, Dr. Kendall ranked 5th.
