Janice Schreier, MSW/LCSW Child & Adolescent Clinical Therapist who has practiced at Mayo Clinic Health System for the last twelve years. She works with children, adolescents, and families and facilitates a group that focuses on the management of anxiety disorders in youth. Janice values the participation of families in their child’s therapy sessions and one of her goals is to empower families to be a part of the process of treating the child’s mental health condition. This session will help families identify when anxiety is maladaptive and what they can do to support their children with learning the skills to manage anxiety.
