Event Details

Film Viewing/Discussion of Angst

Co-sponsored by AFCC-MN & St. Thomas Family Law Society

Join us for a special screening of the highly acclaimed documentary Angst.  

Reception, Networking and Facilitated discussion of the film is included.

Angst – This IndieFlix Original documentary is designed to raise awareness around anxiety and includes interview with kids, teens, educators, experts and a special appearance with Michael Phelps. The film’s goal is to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help. Angst has had over 2000 screenings in 23 countries. Click here for the trailer:

“We often discuss how we must limit damage to children in family court cases. Anxiety in children appears to be on the rise according to National Institutes of Health. This documentary will help you understand what a child perceives when the child is experiencing anxiety. Too often parents and professionals do not appreciate the challenges the child experiences, and can “aid and abet” the unhealthy way the child attempts to address the anxiety, such as through avoidance. This documentary will help family law mental health providers, alternative dispute resolution providers, lawyers and judicial officers better understand the needs of children who experience anxiety.” James Street, President of AFCC-MN; Referee of District Court.

Samantha Colai, MA, LMFT from Ascend Family Institute and Hope Rising will introduce the topic and facilitate a discussion afterwards.
