Presented by Sean Larsen MA, PHD Candidate
Problematic anxiety in childhood is common and can be devastating. Anxiety can influence children’s ability to achieve academically, make friends or find reward in their experience in the world. About 1 in 10 Canadians will access mental health support for mood and anxiety disorders in their lifetime. This presentation will give you essential tools to better understand anxiety in children, recognize when it is becoming problematic, and help children build the capacity to overcome it.
Lunch will be provided.
