Group Therapy for Anxiety
This specialty clinic provides group-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for children aged 8-12 and their caregivers. In the first hour, children learn how to face their fears and worries, and in the second hour, caregivers learn how to support their children when they feel anxious. Weekly group therapy sessions provide children and their caregivers a place to work on their goals alongside other families with similar concerns. During the second hour, complimentary childcare and snacks are provided to children. For more information click here.
