cognitive behavioral therapy, anxiety, school counseling


Adolescent anxiety is an issue that continues to negatively affect many students. The following literature review and training material have been corroborated to provide school staff members with a basic understanding of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and its effectiveness in a school counseling setting with anxious adolescents. The training may also be relevant for parents, guardians, and other school counselors. The material provides data about the problem of anxiety, different CBT modalities, and considerations for school staff. The training also provides an opportunity for school counselors and other staff members to communicate and acknowledge barriers that are often inherent between them. The primary goal is to pave the way for as many anxious adolescents to receive the help they need.
