Warning Signs & What to Look for in: Childhood Anxiety - A Q&A with Joan Luby, M.D.

Warning Signs & What to Look for in: Childhood Anxiety - A Q&A with Joan Luby, M.D.

Teachers, school counselors and other educational professionals are on the front line of dealing with kids with mental health issues and can often be among some of the first people to see that a child is struggling.

Enhancing the potential for early intervention is important and because educational professionals have relationships with students and their families, they are often the people who guide students and their families to resources. As educational professionals learn more about mental health issues, their ability to make appropriate referrals for evaluation will improve for students and their families.

This new series is hosted by Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and host of the public television series Healthy Minds.

Dr. Joan Luby is the Samuel and Mae S. Ludwig Professor of Psychiatry (Child) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She is the founder and director of the Washington University School of Medicine Early Emotional Development Program (EEDP). Dr. Luby’s research has focused on the characterization of early childhood psychopathology, early behavioral and biological markers of risk, and associated alterations in brain and emotional development in early childhood. In addition her program of research has informed the influence of the psychosocial environment on brain development, sensitive periods for these effects and implications for risk and early intervention for mental disorders. Dr. Luby’s contributions include establishing the criteria for identification, validation and early intervention in depressive syndromes in the preschool age group as well as studies in humans showing the effect of parental nurturance and early experiences of poverty on brain development. She has also developed and tested an early psychotherapeutic intervention for preschool depression.
