Workshop Description:
There is currently an epidemic of anxiety affecting children of all ages. Anxiety can take many forms including obsessions, compulsions, phobias, panic, sleep issues, physical illnesses, as well as a host of Anxious childperplexing behaviours such as seeking attention and avoiding situations.

Today’s world can create many challenges for children with school pressures, peer interactions, family dynamics, negative self-image, perfectionism, and many other stressors that can impede a child’s ability to play, learn and grow.

Whether it’s the natural, episodic worries of childhood, or more profound and crippling versions of anxiety, Colleen and Patti will help make sense of the roots of anxiety using Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s approach. Through stories, examples, and theory, Colleen and Patti will suggest ways in which parents can help support their children to find psychological and emotional rest in their world.

This workshop is appropriate for parents of children of all ages. Space is limited to enhance learning and discussion.

Please Note:  Pre-registration is required as space is limited. Tickets will not be sold at the door. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable to another workshop but can be passed on to another person if unable to attend.
