Anxiety is a deceptive disability that masks the true feelings and motivations of individuals. Children’s real or perceived fears will often show up in challenging forms of behavior. If we as caregivers react to these behaviors we only cement the underlying anxiety and end up increasing the overall problem. In this interactive workshop we will explore: how anxiety sometimes looks in children, how to see beyond the surface behavior, and how to understand the underlying fears. We will discuss strategies that support all children in reducing anxiety and learning to take appropriate risks.
