My Child's Anxious Mind: A Caregivers Guide to Strategies That Work for Children and Teens
This workshop is designed for parents, family members and other individuals caring for school aged children and adolescents. Participants will gain knowledge of the science behind anxiety and how it "looks' in children and teens, including why it is important to identify and challenge unwanted anxiety. With this knowledge participants will learn various strategies to help support their youth in calming both routine and unexpected stress and anxiety, and how to change their thoughts and behaviours to positively impact their development. There will be time throughout for ongoing questions and discussion to help bring concepts to life and to allow participants the opportunity to fully understand these topics.
