Helping Children Learn to Manage Their Own Anxiety

Anxiety is the most common disorder of childhood and the number of effected children is only going up. In this interactive session, Dr. Shapiro will discuss the many faces of anxiety and how to individualize effective management strategies.

Dr. Dan hails from East Lansing, Michigan. He came to Washington, D.C. for medical school at George Washington University. His Pediatric Residency training was at Children’s Hospital in DC, after which he practiced Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine in Silver Spring, Maryland for 13 years before shifting his focus to Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. Dr. Dan enjoys seeing children and consulting in his home office and dozens of area schools. He is married with 4 children and 2 grandchildren – all wonderfully different. You can find his terrifically helpful Parent University courses as well as several specialty courses at his website: www.raisingyourchallengingchild.com or visit Dr. Shapiro’s website www.parentchildjourney.com

Workshop #1 Working with Challenging Parents

Every year, teachers find that some parents are more difficult than others. Moving beyond “Parent Deficit Disorder” and “Teacher Deficit Disorder” to a collaborative problem-solving model, Dr. Shapiro will discuss how to objectively evaluate the source of parent-teacher tension and what to do about it.
