Training for Mental Health Providers
To improve access to treatment and care for children with Selective Mutism, Center for Anxiety and Behavioral Change offers educational trainings and workshops on best practices in Selective Mutism. Dr. Lindsay Scharfstein is excited to announce a 4-session, training series for mental health providers of youth with Selective Mutism!
The trainings will cover evidenced-based strategies, such as fading, shaping, and exposures, to help children with Selective Mutism use their voice at school and in important community settings like clubs, sports, and neighborhood parks. The course highlights key elements in effective collaboration with caregivers and schools, and provides ample case consultation.

The Center for Anxiety & Behavioral Change (CABC) is excited to offer a School Refusal Training Institute (SR-TI). Dr. Lindsay Scharfstein will lead an 8-session, consultation series for mental health providers of youth who refuse school.
The SR-TI course will delineate evidence-based cognitive behavioral (CBT) approaches to the assessment and treatment of school refusal. Techniques will address underlying emotional concern(s) and simultaneous school re-entry. There will be ample opportunity for case discussion and consultation.
The sessions will take place on a monthly basis throughout the school year. We will meet for 8 sessions on Tuesdays, from 12pm- 1pm, at CABC in Rockville, MD. The current SRTI session is underway, and we are accepting applications for future courses.
For more information or to enroll in the consultation series, please see our flyer or contact Bridget Camardi at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Lindsay Scharfstein at email@example.com or call 301-610-7850.
