The Truths and the Training of Separation Anxiety with Malena DeMartini.


 Implementing a systematic desensitization protocol is the gold standard for working with separation anxiety. It is essential to remember that there are two equally important words in that phrase - both systematic and desensitization are paramount for this process.

Unfortunately, while the research on this disorder is significant, concrete evidence surrounding effective treatment remains limited. Separation anxiety training is a complex topic that deserves in-depth discussion. In this webinar, we will review the various aspects of what truly makes systematic desensitization the gold standard for resolving separation-related behavior problems.
