Making Sense of ANXIETY: Supporting the Anxious Child or Teen

  • Delbrook Community Centre 815 West Queens Road North Vancouver, BC, V7N Canada (map)

REGISTER

There is currently an epidemic of anxiety affecting children of all ages. 

Anxiety can take many forms including: 

sleep issues
separation anxiety
avoidant behaviour
pursuit or attention seeking
alpha or dominance issues
non-compliance
obsessions 
compulsions 
phobias
panic  
physical illnesses 

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, we will help make sense of the roots of anxiety using Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s approach. Through stories, examples, and theory, we will suggest ways in which parents can help support their children to find psychological and emotional rest in their world. There will be time for questions and discussion.

This workshop is appropriate for parents of children of all ages. ADULTS ONLY (This workshop is not appropriate for children or teens to attend).

 Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Tickets are non-refundable but may be passed on to another person.
