Making Sense of Anxiety in Kids

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Anxiety is one of the leading issues among children and teens today. From school to home, anxiety can happen anywhere and can take on many forms from worrying, obsessions, compulsions, phobias and other perplexing behaviours. What is clear is we cannot treat something we do not understand. In this unique presentation, Deborah will provide a fresh perspective on anxiety by weaving together medicine, developmental psychology, neuroscience, attachment research, and cultural tradition. Application to the classroom environment and school setting will be addressed.
