Description: Anxiety is the most common pediatric psychiatric disorder with a prevalence estimate of 15-25% during childhood (0-18 years of age) yet it is often unrecognized and when it is diagnosed, providers and parents often have difficulty finding mental health providers to care for these children. This lecture will briefly review the types of anxiety commonly seen in Pediatrics, different screening methods for detecting anxiety and the recommended treatment. Because there is often difficulty in obtaining services, we will then review some easy to teach relaxation methods that parents can use at home.
Keywords: ANXIETY

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
