Clinical Kung Fu: Managing Anger in Children and Teens with Anxiety Disorders
Featuring: Alison R. Alden, PhD, and Julieanne R. Pojas, PsyD
Children and adolescents with anxiety disorders often act out or react with anger to treatment. In particular, the prospect of doing exposure and resisting compulsions or safety behaviors can engender not only fear but also anger, resistance, and defiance. This can take the form of tantrums, threats of harm to self or others when parents insist on treatment, overt treatment refusal and refusal to participate in other activities of daily living such as school. This can be difficult for clinicians and families to manage, and can lead to both treatment dropout and conflict at home. This workshop will present practical strategies that clinicians can use to deal with children;s anger, and suggestions for how to present these strategies to parents. Topics covered will include managing tantrums, what to do when a child refuses to participate in treatment or school, and managing verbal and physical aggression toward others.

Children and young people who die by suicide have often experienced the death of a family member or friend, in some cases also by suicide, according to a new report by The University of Manchester.

Changes in regional activation in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and precuneus may indicate trait markers of depression, while activation changes in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and striatum may indicate markers of depression remission.
When an employee shared an email from her CEO on Twitter, she sparked an important conversation about mental health. Madalyn Parker, a web developer who suffers from chronic depression and anxiety, sent an email to her team saying she'd be off two days to focus on her mental health. She said on Twitter she wanted to be specific with her team about using her sick time for mental health so other employees can feel comfortable doing it too.
Mental health is not the easiest topic of discussion considering the social stigma surrounding it, but that hasn't stopped the breadth of mobile therapy and mood diary apps available today. While we'd never suggest that a app is adequate treatment for a condition, their mere existence has inspired the idea that you can use a smartphone to help manage your day to day.
