    "Understanding Anxiety in our Children"
    with Barbara Milrod, M.D.

    Dr. Barbara Milrod, an expert on the psychodynamic understanding of Anxiety and Panic Disorder, will describe and explain the complexities of the current thinking in psychiatry about the diagnosis of Anxiety in school aged children. Various aspects of anxiety will be addressed, including the psychodynamic, developmental, neurochemical, environmental, and cognitive issues that all influence Anxiety and Panic Disorders. There are a variety of ways that professionals treat Anxiety Disorders. Dr. Milrod will help us understand them, and specifically address the important contribution of psychodynamic therapies in helping our anxious children.
