NJCTS' First Webinar of 2012 to Focus on Emotion Regulation


One-hour presentation will be geared toward parents for help with children and teenagers

Somerville, NJ, January 15, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Children and adolescents who have difficulty regulating their emotions often experience ongoing irritability, temper tantrums and depression. These conditions will be addressed in the next New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) Wednesday Webinar from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 25.

Titled “Emotion Regulation: Strategies for Children and Adolescents Experiencing Irritability and Difficulties Managing Their Emotions,” this webinar will discuss skills that can help children understand the emotions they experience, reduce their emotional vulnerability and decrease emotional suffering through increasing emotional awareness, building mastery, coping ahead, acting opposite to emotions and accepting emotions.

Presented by Julie Lynn Ryan, Ph.D., an assistant professor of psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University, this webinar will review emotion regulation strategies for children and adolescents experiencing irritability and difficulties managing their emotions.

Ryan’s clinical and research projects have focused on anxiety, depression and disorders of emotion regulation in children and adolescents. She was trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy by Dr. Alec Miller during her clinical internship at Montefiore Medical Center.

NJCTS presents online seminars for parents, educators and professionals on topics of interest to the Tourette Syndrome community at no-cost to participants. TS is a neurological disorder in which as many as 1 in 100 people show symptoms.

In 2008, NJCTS launched the Wednesday Webinar series, which currently draws an audience from 48 states and 11 countries. Professional development credits will be offered upon verifying attendance of the webinar and completion of the exit survey. They will be distributed, by mail, the week after the webinar.
