Event Description

Anxiety is a persistent master. When it moves in, it takes over daily routines, learning, recreation, and social connection. To make matters worse, the things adults (including many therapists and school systems) do to help anxious children can actually make the anxiety stronger. All these children put a palpable strain on frustrated, helpless parents and teachers. And there is no escaping the problem: one in every five kids suffer from a diagnosable anxiety disorder.

What we teach children about risk, danger, uncertainty, and problem-solving makes a huge difference in whether they go on to become anxious or depressed teens and adults. In this workshop, you will explore concrete and often counter-intuitive strategies that educate children and adults about anxiety and provide an “umbrella approach” that is applicable to all the anxiety disorders and OCD. This workshop will demonstrate HOW to interrupt anxiety’s cognitive patterns with simple, process-based strategies that offer an alternative to techniques that inadvertently support avoidance of anxious symptoms. Lynn will offer counsellors,teachers and parents proven strategies that help children push through anxiety, worry, fears and phobias so that they can move forward, learn and reach their full potential.
