The 2020 ADAA virtual Fall Forum will focus on anxiety and worry in youth, a transdiagnostic issue affecting children, teens, and emerging adults and will address the ways in which technology can be harnessed to address these challenges. An interdisciplinary group of speakers will present on biological and psychosocial mechanisms and interventions.  ADAA President, Luana Marques, PhD, will moderate the forum. 

The Forum will include two individual presentations by Drs. Pimentel and Potter as well as a 90-minute discussion with child and adolescent experts.

Panel Discussion: The Intersection of Technology and Youth Anxiety
This panel will focus on the ways in which technology has aided the development of innovative new treatments for anxious children and adolescents (e.g., teletherapy, therapy apps, computerized interventions) and has helped to normalize the experience of anxiety through targeted social media messaging. We will also discuss the ways in which technology has contributed to the significant increase in youth anxiety disorders and possible mechanisms involved in this correlation.
