Anxiety: The Monster Among Us. Alicia Farrell, Ph.D.
More children than ever seem to be struggling with anxiety. This workshop is designed to address why and what we can do about it. Here are some questions that will be answered:· Why are there more children struggling with anxiety than in past generations?· What is healthy, age-appropriate anxiety vs an anxiety disorder?· Is anxiety genetic, environmental or both? Why is that important?· What is the difference between stress and anxiety? How can you tell the difference in your child?· What specific skills and techniques can you use to help your children become confident and courageous in the face of their anxiety?
Parenting an anxious and/or stressed child can be challenging. This workshop will offer you practical tools and information you can take home and use immediately. Time well spent!
