Effectively Managing Anxiety at Home and School
LICSW, Psychotherapist, Author & International Presenter
This is a FREE community presentation for parents, educators and service providers.
Children 13 years and older are welcome to attend.
When children and their parents are in the grips of worry and stress, it feels overwhelming. Anxiety is a very persistent master; when it moves into families, it takes over daily routines, schoolwork, bedtime, and recreation. To make matters worse, the things adults (including many therapists and school systems) do to help and console anxious children actually make the worry cycle stronger. The great news? Research shows that modifying certain patterns makes a big difference in whether or not children go on to become anxious or depressed teens and adults. This workshop teaches seven concrete strategies that normalize worry, and help families respond and react to worry in a different way.
