Event Details

Nervous to join new groups?

Worrying about what might happen?

Constantly asking for reassurance?

Still doesn’t want to be away from you?

If this sounds familiar it sounds like you might be dealing with an anxious child.   As parents, this often leads to conflicting feelings – your heart breaks for them and you want to protect them and be there for them. On the other hand, it can be exhausting and frustrating when you are constantly making accommodations. Does it feel like other families have it so much easier than you do? Anxiety can become an issue that ends up impacting the whole family. I’m here to help with strategies on how to help calm your anxious child and help them expand their comfort zone. In this workshop we will cover:

  • The anatomy of the anxiety – what happens biologically and neurologically when we are anxious
  • Genetics and environmental factors
  • DSM Versus Adlerian perspectives
  • How underlying fears and perfectionism play a part
  • How anxiety presents in children: generalized anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, phobias and panic attacks
  • Calming techniques, including:
      • Breathing exercises
      • Thought blocking
      • Self Talk
      • And more…
  • Correcting Cognitive Distortions (CBT for kids)
  • What happens when we jump in too soon
  • How to introduce slow & gradual exposures
  • Reassurance
  • The art of applying encouragement
  • When to seek additional support

If you are looking for education and support as a parent or caregiver of an anxious child, this workshop is for you!  

Please note: A light snack and beverage service will be provided mid morning.  Ticket sales are non-refundable, but they are transferable. If you are unable to attend the event you can sell them to a friend!
