Parent’s Guide to Evidence Based Treatments webinar
October 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT
Free offering from Fairfax County CSA-
Have you ever wondered what your child is “doing” when they go into a therapy appointment? What do CBT, DBT, ACT, FBT and other acronyms mean? What keywords should you be hearing or listening for when your kids are involved in therapy? We will review evidence-based and empirically supported treatments for common conditions such as depression, anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, and self-injury.
The presentation is targeted toward helping parents and loved ones understand mental health treatment, how to choose the best treatment, and how to find credentialed providers in the area. The importance of outcome measures and ethical considerations in treatment, as well as determining when it’s time to transition to a new therapist or medication management provider will also be reviewed.
