Speaker to Discuss Anxiety and OCD in Adolescents and Young Adults

Date/Time

Jan 17, 2019
07:30 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

Dr. Dan Villiers, co-founder of the Anxiety Institute in Greenwich, Conn., will give a free talk titled In the Trenches: Family Impact and Parenting Strategies for Anxiety and OCD. Dr. Villiers will discuss what it feels like to have anxiety, how anxiety can look different across child, adolescent, and young adult development, and the treatment and family interventions that have proven effective. 

 

The event will take place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at Greenwich Town Hall, 101 Field Point Rd., Greenwich, Conn. Hosted by the Southwest CT affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the event is free of charge and open to the public.

 

One of the nation's leading interventionists, Dr. Villiers has educated, motivated, and inspired more than 700 families to pursue treatment for their children with acute anxiety, OCD and trauma. At the forefront of developing specialized anxiety treatment programs for school-aged children, Dr. Villiers co-founded the Anxiety Institute, a Greenwich-based organization offering an Intensive Day Program for anxious adolescents and young adults. "Having struggled with debilitating social anxiety and panic disorder throughout high school and college," said Dr. Villiers, "my life has been dedicated to raising awareness about the widespread impact of anxiety, reducing the shame of those suffering from anxiety disorders, and eliciting commitment for treatment."
