Tools and Techniques for Helping Children and Parents Cope with Anxiety

Join us for a frank and illuminating discussion on child anxiety with renowned child and adolescent psychologist Randi Pochtar, PhD, from the Child Study Center, a part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.

According to the CDC, over 7% of children aged 3-17 years (approximately 4.4 million) have diagnosed anxiety. Dr. Pochtar discusses how to distinguish between normal anxiety and anxiety disorders, strategies to combat childhood anxiety, why play is important for a child’s emotional growth, and why it’s OK to feel anxious as a parent. Moderated by 92Y’s Ellen Birnbaum and Sally Tannen, the discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
