Parenting the Emotional Child


This seminar is for those interested in learning to optimize their parenting of a child or adolescent experiencing fear, anxiety, depression, and/or obsessive-compulsive symptoms. The presenter, Dr. Jill Ehrenreich-May, director of the Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Treatment Program in the Department of Psychology at the University of Miami, will review the development and maintenance of these concerns as well as discuss how to identify a more significant problem and distinguish it from the more typical experiences of fear, sadness, and anger in youth. She will also identify common parenting “pitfalls” encountered when dealing with a distressed child or adolescent and how to counter these challenges through evidence-based techniques that encourage self-regulation and effective coping.
