    Talking About Pediatric Anxiety Disorders In the Frum Community

    About the Program

    Join us as we reframe our children’s common experiences as neurodiverse exceptionalities and positive members of the Orthodox community and create an educational network to support parents of children of all ages with anxiety disorders. We want to erase the stigma of such disorders and help parents and children feel less alone.

    Support Group

    Dr. Kesner will be offering a Zoom group session for Jewish parents with children who are diagnosed with pediatric anxiety disorders. The group will take place on Thursday evenings from 8:00-9:15 beginning mid-February and will be a non-clinical support network for families to help each other in navigating treatment, relationships and well-being within their Jewish communities. Please contact her directly at MarciaJKesnerPhD@gmail.com to register.
