Are You Concerned About Your Anxious Child?
Join us for an evening workshop for parents/caregivers!
Our Workshop date has changed to NOVEMBER 14, 2016!
Anxiety can affect children of all ages. Children may experience anxiety in specific situations or in a generalized manner across situations. Fortunately, there are ways to help children manage and reduce their anxiety.
In this workshop, you’ll learn about childhood anxiety and how it manifests in children (e.g. behaviours, physical symptoms etc.). In addition, you’ll be given the chance to meet and learn from other parents whose children are struggling with anxiety. Finally, you'll come away with strategies to help your child learn to manage his or her anxiety.
Topics to be covered, include:
What is anxiety?
How does anxiety manifest itself in children?
How might anxiety impact your child’s experience and success in school?
How can you prevent your child’s anxiety from negatively impacting different areas of his or her life?
What are some strategies that you can implement to help your child manage his or her anxiety
