Lynn will show you HOW to break the anxiety cycle
Families spend a great deal of effort looking for the answers to WHY their child has anxiety issues. But productive solutions result from asking HOW: “How do I get my child to school? How do I get myself to do things that make me anxious? How do I handle the way anxiety makes my body feel?”

I'm a HOW therapist who can teach you and your clients what to DO differently. My expert approach will help you and your clients access the internal and external resources they’ve already developed and create the new ones they need.

From your first session, children and parents will learn skills that boost confidence and foster adaptive thinking and positive results. Now you can be the clinician who can say with confidence, "I can help your child overcome anxiety!"
 
Here's what you'll learn in this certificate training...

Join Lynn for six, step-by-step modules where you'll discover proven strategies to interrupt anxiety’s cognitive patterns with simple, process-based strategies. You’ll master concrete and often counter-intuitive strategies that normalize worry for families and provide an “umbrella approach” that applies to all anxiety disorders.

Module 1

Lynn provides essential insight into:

1 Breaking the anxiety culture – escaping the high demands of school, home, social life
 
1The importance of psychoeducation
 
1Creating a new framework for families to separate from generational anxiety
 
1Recognizing anxiety and interrupting common thought patterns

Next, you'll watch Lynn in action!

You’re invited into Lynn’s consulting room where you’ll see her proven, powerful approaches in action with three never-seen-before video sessions. You’ll go on a moment-by-moment journey with Lynn as she applies her interventions with kids and families to overcome anxiety and worry.

Module 1
Working with school anxiety, and fears about driving and heights

In this first in-session video, you'll see Lynn working with an adolescent client who hasn't been able to attend school due to her anxiety. Following a minor car accident, this client has also been fearful of driving, and her fear of heights had made it difficult for her family to find an apartment to rent. Discover how Lynn establishes a connection with her young client and guides her through practical, easy-to-master strategies to help her overcome her worry.


 
Module 1
Working with misbehavior and fear of bullying anxiety

In this session, Lynn works with a young girl and her parents to help the young client with her worries about bullying and other children's misbehavior. Observe how Lynn works with both the client and her parents to develop family goals that deal directly with the problem to help the child overcome her anxiety and feelings of overwhelm.



 
Module 1
Working with an extreme worrier

In this session, you'll see Lynn at work with an 8-year-old boy who's an extreme worrier. Even sitting in-session with Lynn makes him worry. Experience how Lynn helps the child understand his own worry, and watch how she uses humor and animation to help the boy overcome his fears.
