Dousing the Flame – In Touch (presentation notes on this event with Dr. M. Joann Wright)

It may seem that parents and adolescents don’t have it easy in the teen years. Yet this may be an ideal time for behavioral interventions that help teach defiant or anxious kids to learn new patterns of response. With the best of intentions, we can often reinforce behaviors leading to an increase in anxiety. In this important presentation Dr. Wright will unpack important components to knowing if you are reinforcing or extinguishing unwanted behaviors in children. Here are strategies to alter negative thinking and behavioral patterns and reinforce calmer, healthier ones.

M. Joann Wright Ph.D., is the Director of Clinical Training and Anxiety Services at Linden Oaks at Linden Oaks Behavioral Health.
