The UBC Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa will convene on
Tuesday, February 18, 2104
to visit with colleagues and discuss
“Improving Understanding and Support for Children and Youth with Anxiety”
led by Dr. Connie Coniglio,
Provincial Executive Director of the Children and Women’s Mental Health & Substance Use Programs.
Educators require an awareness of the prevalence of mental health conditions among the people they serve, particularly anxiety in school-aged children and youth. Dr. Coniglio will address the causes and symptoms of anxiety and will specify the resources available to educators for providing effective interventions and supports.
Dr. Coniglio is very well positioned to address these issues. Her role focuses on child and adolescent eating disorders, women’s substance use, other youth disorders and general health literacy. She manages several health initiatives. Connie has served with Vancouver Coastal Health, North Shore and is a registered psychologist.
