About this training
Many of the children and adolescents we work with are initially referred because they are struggling with strong feelings of anxiety. This can have a known ‘cause’ or not; it can seem to have come on suddenly or have always been there. It can be showing in behaviours such as difficulty in sleeping, low self-esteem, specific fears (of dogs for example), difficulty in being out of sight of a parent, not wanting to attend school, emotional overload and related ‘meltdowns’.
At this workshop adults will learn about the potential origins of anxiety, triggers to anxious episodes, how to notice when anxiety is taking over and practical solutions to help children manage feelings of anxiety.
