Training for Schools and Educators

The Center for Anxiety provides flexible, school-based trainings to teachers and administrators, based on institutional needs. Trainings can range in length from one-time professional development lectures for faculty (on topics such as how to manage anxiety in the classroom or discipline students more effectively) to multi-part lectures, one-on-one-teacher training, and in-class supervision.

We also offer social skills groups for students as well as a state-of-the-art Teacher-Child Interaction Training (TCIT) program. TCIT is a classroom adaptation of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) that helps teachers to better manage difficult students in the classroom. It is a highly effective, research-based training program designed to promote positive teacher-child relationships and provide teachers with effective tools for behavior management. Costs of these services can often be covered by schools, communities, or families of individual children who are in need of assistance.

Advanced Training for Clinicians (Clinical Supervision)

Workshops and seminars are an important forum to develop initial familiarity with a clinical approach, however learning the nuances of how to practice evidence-based treatment requires more in depth study and ongoing supervision on actual cases. The Center for Anxiety therefore offers supervision for licensed and license-eligible practitioners who are currently providing psychotherapy either privately or in the context of a healthcare/community setting. Supervisees hone their clinical skills in anxiety treatment through specific direction and feedback in how to effectively deliver Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for anxiety and related symptoms. A four-week minimum commitment is required. Please contact us for more information or to arrange for a (free) initial discussion with one of our clinicians.
