Drs. Siegel, Cassiday, and Ali at Northside Prep presentation on Stress and Resiliency

The Anxiety Treatment Center team was recently invited to Northside College Prep in Chicago for a panel discussion for parents on Stress, Anxiety, and Resiliency in Young Adults.  Dr. Siegel, Dr. Ali, and Dr. Cassiday described how challenging stress can be during the teen years, and offered practical advice for healthy communication within the family. In addition, they discussed the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression, and offered  suggestions for parents and school administrators on how to create healthier home and school environments. Parents learned why teen anxiety and depression have skyrocketed in the US, and strategies to minimize the impact within their own homes.
