Childhood Anxiety: Understanding & Helping Children Heal


Childhood Anxiety: Understanding & Helping Children Heal

Does your child or the children you work with struggle with anxiety: panic attacks, separation anxiety, stomach aches, headaches, tantrums, obsessions/compulsions, avoidance of activities, racing thoughts, or troubles with sleep?

Anxiety has many faces, and at this workshop parents, caregivers, and professionals will learn about the psychological and physiological roots of anxiety, why it is on the rise in our children, and what to do to help children better manage it.

This course has a holistic* and strength-based approach that focusses on what we as caretakers, parents, and professionals can do vs. stigmatizing children who are struggling. Various facets of the child's environment will be explored that can contribute to a child's emotional struggles.
