“Tween and Adolescent Anxiety: A Parents’ Survival Guide”

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014 @ 7:00pm

The talk will cover the developmentally normal anxieties young adults face, tools that parents can utilize to help empower their kids, and signs that suggest more significant difficulties. Dr. Stember will touch upon strategies that all parents can use, as well as approaches he utilizes to assist individuals who display more concerning symptoms (e.g., ADD, anxiety, learning and spectrum disorders).

Dr. Stember holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and maintains faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital. He is a recognized expert in cognitive behavioral/exposure-based therapy for anxiety, learning and behavioral disorders.
