Parenting children and teenagers with anxiety
I am often asked by parents how to manage very anxious children, particularly adolescents. This workshop explores these issues and can be very beneficial to aid understanding and provide helpful strategies.
This workshop is aimed at parents negotiating these challenging issues with their children. It will explore:
- The brain development of your anxious teenager.
- How anxiety can be masked as anger? Dramatic / instant reactions.
- Why its so hard for them to ‘just get on with it’?
- Generational family patterns of anxiety and ability to cope – how do genetics affect anxiety?
- Self harm and suicidal thoughts.
- School refusal and social anxiety.
- The different roles mums and dads take to help them - and you - cope more
- Sharing experiences with other parents to enable mutual understanding and support.
