April 7, 21 & 28 -- Understanding Anxiety from the Inside-Out
6:45 pm Grab a coffee, sign in, and connect with other parents. (Yes, in person! Yay!)
7-9:00 pm Workshop and Q&A
Anxiety in children and youth is reaching epidemic proportions as one of the most common diagnoses in children. Why? What is going on? What has shifted in our culture?
Anxiety takes many forms, including obsessions, compulsions, phobias, panic, learning problems and more. In order to create lasting change, we need to explore solutions that address the roots of the problem, and stop just managing the symptoms.
Workshop participants will gain insights about the underlying causes of anxiety and the various ways we can facilitate solutions that specifically address the alarm children are experiencing. Change is possible.
Insights shared in this workshop are based on developmental science and the relational approach of Dr. Gordon Neufeld. Learn more about Hannah Beach here.
