This workshop looks at anxiety and depression in children across the U.S. along with some patterns and trends from Vermont. This workshop will assist parents, caregivers and/or providers with deepening their perspective-taking, while providing evidence-based approaches to behavioral strategies, support techniques, instructional approaches, and maximizing the environment. Simple positive reinforcement methods and techniques will be explored, as well as best adaptational practices for students who exhibit these characteristics. In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • How common anxiety/depression is in children and teens
  • How to identify an anxious child or child with depressive symptoms
  • How anxiety/depression is often misunderstood
  • How anxiety/depression interferes with developmental growth
  • How to treat and reduce anxiety and depression
  • Successful outcomes for anxiety and depression issues


• Dr. Jacqui Kelleher – Executive Director of Vermont Family Network. Dr. Kelleher has a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and will impart wisdom from her training and 20+ years’ experience working with parents and educators with respect to the psychology of development, teaching and learning for those with disabilities. She is also the parent of four now adult children who collectively experience autism, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
