Meet Noah B. Clayman, LCSW-R, ACT
Director: NYC Cognitive Therapy
ADAA Member Since 2014
I joined ADAA in 2014 to increase professional connections and friendships, and to stay abreast on the most cutting edge treatments. Aside from making the decision to pursue post-graduate training in CBT, the act of joining ADAA has been the most important step of my professional career. I am thankful to be a part of ADAA for many reasons. (1) ADAA has one of the best annual conferences for mental health providers. (2) The conference includes workshops that target psychotherapy conceptualization and methods, with particular focus on evidence-based approaches, and I have gotten to meet many of the world-renowned educators and leaders in the field whose writings inspired my work. (3) ADAA has afforded me opportunities to teach workshops at the annual conference. For example, I had the honor of co-teaching the workshop session, " Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy: A Novel Approach to Changing Core Beliefs in CBT" with TBCT creator Dr. Irismar Reis De Oliveira, MD. (4) Conferences are held in cities that are fun to visit and explore outside of conference times. (5) unlike other conferences I have attended, the ADAA conference is not overwhelming in scale, there is always something stimulating to attend, and there are no additional fees to see your favorite presenter.

Addressing Perfectionism Across Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents: Learning to Live by Values Instead of by Rules
Featuring: Lynne Siqueland, PhD
Fortunately, CBT has much to offer perfectionistic youth. In this webinar, Dr. Lynne Siqueland (based on the Master Clinician workshop presented at Anxiety and Depression Conference 2017 with Dr. Deborah Ledley) will share strategies for working with this challenging population. Children and teens with very high standards and expectations for themselves often do not want or are fearful of challenging their thinking or changing their behavior. Furthermore, high standards tend to be positively reinforced by families, schools, and society. With this in mind, this webinar will discuss ways to build rapport and engage this challenging population in treatment.

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.

Next month's June issue will feature articles by the following ADAA members:
ADAA members Barbara Rothbaum, Kerry Ressler and Vasiliki Michopoulos (ADAA board member) are co-authors on a research study focused on mobile assessment of heightened skin conductance in posttraumatic stress disorder.

Scientists say they have found where fear and anxiety reside in the brain. The findings could lead to new ways to diagnose and treat people at higher risk for anxiety-related conditions, the researchers suggest. The small study, published in the journal Emotion, involved 56 mentally healthy students who underwent MRI scans of their brains.
Harassment via social media can exacerbate existing mental health pathology in adolescents, new research suggests. A small study showed that those who had been victims of cyberbullying had significantly higher scores on measures of depression, anger and dissociative symptoms than those who were not cyberbullied.
Hours of commuting may be mind-numbingly dull, but new research shows that it might also be having an adverse effect on both your health and your performance at work. A study of more than 34,000 British employees across all U.K. industries found that workers with a commute of less than half an hour gain an extra seven days' worth of productive time each year when compared to those with commutes of 60 minutes or more.
The Syria Civil War has exposed millions of civilians to extreme physical and emotional trauma. Anxiety is common among Syrian refugee children, affecting more than four in five children, according to research presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in San Diego.
As if it isn't tough enough being an overweight kid, a new study shows it could have long-lasting repercussions for psychological health, too. When compared with normal-weight kids who become overweight adults, overweight or obese youth in the study faced three times the risk of depression in adulthood, the research found.

Instagram is the most damaging social media platform when it comes to young people's mental health, new research suggests. The photo-sharing app, which is owned by Facebook and has 700 million users worldwide, is considered the social media platform most likely to cause young people to feel depressed, anxious and lonely, according to a U.K.-wide study.
Teen suicide is one of the most disturbing problems America faces. Why is it often so unpredictable? Why are some teens simply better able to handle life's challenges than others? Contrary to popular belief, it's not just about having good parents and strong role models, although those things also have proven very important.
A new study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health shows that young males who were treated for violence-related injuries in an urban pediatric emergency department overwhelmingly identified a need for mental health services, including therapy and suicide counseling.
Over three decades of research suggest that depression increases the odds of death. However, a new research paper throws doubt on this presumed link after finding no evidence of a direct association between depression and all-cause mortality. The paper, which involved the largest ever analysis on the topic, is published in the latest edition of World Psychiatry.
Good sleep is essential for our mental well-being. Just one night of disturbed sleep can leave us feeling cranky, flat, worried or sad the next day. So it's no surprise sleeping problems, like difficulty falling asleep, not getting enough sleep or regularly disrupted sleep patterns, are associated with anxiety and depression.
Insulin typically saves the lives of those with diabetes, but it can also be a way for some people to kill themselves, a new review warns. People with the blood sugar disease tend to suffer higher rates of depression, the researchers explained. And suicide or suicide attempts using insulin or other diabetes medications that lower blood sugar levels may not always be an easy-to-spot attempt at self-harm, they added.
