The Helping Children With Anxiety Workshop is a two-hour event on learning how to support your child’s anxious thoughts.
Whether it's a monster under the bed, a new social situation, or fear about an upcoming piano recital, anxiety can be an incredible frustration for children. Raising a child who struggles with constant worrying is hard - for both the parent and the child.
Reading The Opposite of Worry, by Lawrence Cohan, drastically changed the way I viewed anxiety in children - and myself - and equipped with me a playful new perspective that has radically changed how I support my children when anxiety arises. And, I can't wait to share these lessons with you.
I have distilled the tools and suggestions in this book into powerful workshop activities that have the power to bring more peace, empowerment, and most importantly, playfulness back into your home.
You are your child's emotional coach. It's up to you to help kids to talk about their feelings, label them, and feel understood.
Knowledge is power when it comes to supporting your anxious child. And if you find yourself anxious alongside your child, this workshop will benefit you, too.
Through fun and interactive activities, I'll also teach your children how to leverage powerful tools they can use to be more in charge of their thoughts, build their confidence, and squash their anxiety gremlins.
We’ll also take a deep dive into how as parents, we can become more conscious about how our own actions ripple across the mental health of our children and what we can do to grab hold of our thoughts and redirect them to be more empowering, positive and compassionate.
By the end of the workshop, you and your child will walk away with:
- A deeper understanding of what is happening in their bodies when they feel anxious;
- A training packet that includes simple, effective strategies that build connection through fun, play, and empathy;
- A take-home illustration created by your child/ren designed to comfort them during times of worry.
This workshop appropriate for ages 5-12.
