Event description

Description

"Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns for children and adults, affecting upwards of 20% of children and adolescents over their lifespan. Anxious youth are often quiet and well behaved, and thus frequently go unnoticed by their parents, teachers, and coaches. Alternatively others can be disruptive and act out, being labeled as having attention deficit disorder or being a “bad” kid. Both scenarios result in youth failing to receive the help they desperately need. Sadly, untreated anxiety can lead to depression, missed opportunities in career and relationships, increased substance use, and a decreased quality of life." (AnxietyBC.com)

At this hands-on and engaging workshop, you'll learn;

  • Why understanding anxiety and related "disorders" as functional and effective strategies for your child to cope with fear, frustration and failure is essential.
  • Practical strategies for decreasing symptoms of anxiety and building confidence and competence in your child.
  • Where (and when!) to turn to further resources and professionals for help with anxiety and other mental health concerns.
