Teen Anxiety and Cognitive Behavior Therapy - A Deeper Dive

About this event

Teen Anxiety and Cognitive Behavior Therapy - A Deeper Dive

Robin Barstow, LCSW

REGISTER

1.5 Clinical CEs approved by NASW Maine

Sometimes young people/teens escalate instead of communicate. I call this “emergency mind.” When responding to a situation as though it were an emergency when it isn’t, we convey anxiety instead of information.

Fortunately, there are great treatments for anxiety. In this workshop we will use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for learning to understand how thoughts contribute to our behaviors and anxiety symptoms. Each of us has a stream of automatic thoughts running through our minds. Many young people/teens believe they are simply anxious, so they struggle to identify specific trigger thoughts. Writing is the first step in cognitive-behavioral therapy to bringing stressful thoughts into consciousness. Only when we are conscious of our thoughts do we gain the power to question them. In this deeper dive, we will learn to use the Beck Thought Record effectively, using a specific example of a young man named Joe.

About the Presenter

Robin Barstow is a psychotherapist, writer, speaker, and founder of MINDWELTH, a Holistic Mental Health private practice. Driven by her goal of helping people to suffer less, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the foundation of her social work. She also practices CBT on herself daily, and that experience informs her understanding of this profound, practical method. Robin Barstow holds a MA from Columbia University, a PhD from Yale University, and LCSW from the University of Maine. She has extensive training and knowledge from working inpatient and outpatient, with both children and adults. Her hobbies include swimming in the sea, knitting and traveling.
