Program on Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Anxiety at Central HS on Jan. 10

Westosha Central High School’s Student Services Department is pleased to have Dr. Mervin Langley share information about “Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Anxiety” in a free presentation on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 7 p.m. in the all purpose room at the school, 24617 75th St., Paddock Lake.

While it is normal for all children to experience occasional anxiety, some children experience situations where it can be so overwhelming it affects their daily routines, school performance, peer relationships, and family relationships. This presentation will assist parents/caregivers in gaining a deeper understanding of their child’s experience with anxiety so they can help with anxiety management and coping.

Langley will talk about how anxiety manifests itself, along with strategies for targeting anxiety and biological treatments that may be available.

Langley is a psychotherapist at Clinical Psychology Associates in Burlington where he provides therapy to individuals and families regarding a number of different mental health disorders/concerns. Langley was also associated with a major research study to develop motivational strategies through the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and has published journal articles and book chapters in the U.S., Spain, and South Africa.
