GLADNEY UNIVERSITY: The purpose of Gladney University is to equip clients and professionals with the knowledge they need to help provide positive and healthy outcomes for the children we serve. Gladney University provides adoptive parents with education and support before, during and after their adoption. This education and support helps Gladney provide the finest adoption experience possible, and its part of Gladney’s promise of family for life. Additionally, Gladney University provides medical professionals, counselors, social service advocates and community members with cutting edge continuing education programs by offering relevant and engaging, web-based and in person educational adoption and child welfare resources. Gladney is uniquely positioned to provide outstanding training to parents and professionals because of our 130-year history of serving families and children. Our staff is highly qualified, experienced and compassionate. This combination creates dynamic and very successful training programs.


Anxiety is a common problem for many children. Whether the anxiety arises from genetic factors or environmental conditions, children need to find a way to face the anxiety and master it. This training will examine the symptoms of anxiety and how it impacts children. We will explore playful interventions that can be used to help children manage anxiety producing situations.
