Why the Child Anxiety Center?
The Child Anxiety Center is a remarkable place in that it believes that its employees are its most valuable asset. Our center was developed by clinicians and for clinicians for the benefit our patients. While working here you will find a warm and fun-filled environment where you are challenged to deliver the best in behavioral healthcare to children, while also striking work/life balance. We know you are at your best when you are validated in the workplace, given the tools to suceed, and encounter real growth potential. Our staff is uniquely positioned to promote deep and lasting change in their patients through our evidence-based programming and ongoing treatment innovations.
Our center runs four separate programs. The first is our assessment program which conducts neuropsychological, psychoeducational, executive functioning, and autism evaluations. We focus on delivering accurate, timely, and accessible reports written for the family and directly linked to the child's intervention needs. Secondly, we have an anxiety program which treats the full range of anxiety and OC spectrum disorders. Treatment protocols in the anxiety clinic are heavily based on current research in exposure therapy, but include other cognitive behavioral strategies based on the individual needs of the patient. Thirdly, we have a mood disorders program which treats depressive disorders, bipolar spectrum disorder, disruptive mood dysregulation disorder, suicidality and self-harm. Treatment in our mood program focuses on core CBT, mindfulness-based treatment, and behavioral activation. The level of integration of each facet depends on the child's needs and response to treatment. Finally, our co-occurring behavior program will take on cases of oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, ADHD, and autism related agression and social skills development. This program is grounded in behavior analysis with moderate integration of cognitive techniques when indicated.
Just as the Child Anxiety Center is committed to excellence in treatment, we are also equally committed to continuous improvement and staying on the forefront of advances in the field. Every clinician in our center takes part in ongoing collaborative supervision and embedded professional development that leverages the combined expertise of our staff. Additionally, the Child Anxiety Center supports professional development beyond our four walls that enhances the lifelong learning for all staff. Professional development for our team is extensive and takes place in United States and around the world through:
