Our society is experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety and stress due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Anxiety is the most prevalent mental health symptom. Persons with anxiety disorders are reporting increased symptoms and episodes and most people are experiencing some symptoms of anxiety related to the current health crisis. This course takes a comprehensive look at anxiety disorders and stress in our society, the impact on diverse populations, and anxiety during COVID 19.

Primary anxiety disorders will be reviewed including phobias, social anxiety, panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. The impact of COVID 19 and treatment approaches for anxiety disorders are provided. Research on the impact of stress and discrimination on racial minorities, women, and LGBTQ individuals is reviewed. Group discussions will focus on the stressors in our own lives and in the youth and families that we serve. The impact of stress during COVID 19, challenges we have faced and self-care approaches during the pandemic are also discussed. Participants will also develop an Individual Self Care Plan.
