Is your child struggling with anxiety? Worrying about everything? Avoiding things?
Please join the Salt Spring Island Local Action Team in welcoming Dr. Kristin Buhr to Salt Spring Island for an information session. All are welcome!
Develop a better understanding of anxiety and anxiety problems in children and youth. Learn about helpful resources and effective cognitive-behavioural (CBT) strategies for managing anxiety, which include relaxation exercises to help “dial down” physical symptoms of anxiety; healthy thinking strategies to combat worries; and tools for facing feared situations. Get tips on helping your child develop a healthy foundation and manage excessive worry, panic, perfectionism, test anxiety, social anxiety, and school refusal.
