Event description

Description

Does your child or the children you work with struggle with anxiety: panic attacks, separation anxiety, stomach aches, headaches, tantrums, obsessions/compulsions, avoidance of activities, racing thoughts, or troubles with sleep?

Anxiety has many faces, and at this workshop parents, caregivers, and professionals will learn about the psychological and physiological roots of anxiety, why it is on the rise in our children, and what to do to help children better manage it.

This course has a holistic* and strength-based approach that focusses on what we as caretakers, parents, and professionals can do vs. stigmatizing children who are struggling. Various facets of the child's environment will be explored that can contribute to a child's emotional struggles.

Join Tammy Schamuhn, Registered Psychologist, Registered Play Therapist, and Co-Founder of the Institute of Child Psychology, as we explore the research and theory research and theory in the field of mental health, education, attachment, naturopathic medicine, and interpersonal neurobiology will be explored. Attendees will be given resources and direct tools to help their child, or the children they work with, overcome this emotional obstacle.

This workshop aims to enlighten, empower, and inspire those who take care of our children.

TESTIMONIALS:

"I work in this field myself and I have attended a lot of workshops and courses on childhood mental health. This was informative, straight forward, and deeply touching. Tammy's no-nonsense style drove some important points home and left me with a lasting impression. I absolutely loved that her whole course was geared to what we, the adults in the child's life, can do - not what the child needs to do/fix/improve on. I feel motivated and enlightened to personally take on parenting in a even more conscious and meaningful way. Thank you for that."
- Meagan Marriott

"I walked away from this course with lots of ideas to help our daughter as well as our family. I enjoyed the way Tammy presented her real life experiences, videos, literature and PowerPoint presentation. It was definitely a worthwhile course that I feel every parent, caregiver or educator would benefit from"
- Shauna Lawrie

"Thank you so much. You gave us so much to think about in how we interact with our son. I have honestly noticed a difference in his behaviour, his interactions with his siblings, and the way we are approaching his anxiety"
- Brandi. L

"We I feel I have a better understanding of my own children and what they need from me . . I would recommend this course to all parents and caregivers"
- Kyla Dugatie

"As a newly appointed Educational Assistant, it was helpful to have a better understanding of how to empathize with a frazzled child. This presentation equipped me with several tools on how to identify a child that may have unhealthy levels of stress."
- Justin Schumacher

"This session opened my eyes to what is going on in my stepson 's brain. How my efforts to help at this point have been somewhat futile and me feeling exhausted has changed to me feeling recharged gaining a new perspective- I am now armed with the proper tools to help us both navigate this journey with anxiety.”
- Elizabeth S.

"Overall I found this course very informative with relevant information that was easy to understand, and I left feeling empowered and ready to help my child with anxiety! Great course by Tammy; had my attention the entire time!! Highly recommended to anyone with a child with anxiety or even to parents who just want to better understand some of their child’s behaviors!"
- N.K.

"Being a social worker student working in a school setting, I've seen a lot of anxiety of various degrees from students. This course was a great introduction into understanding anxiety and strategies to use when helping a child who is experiencing anxiety. Loved the it!”
- Kailynn Taylor
