Do you live or work with children whose anxiety is overwhelming them? Do you worry about them choosing harmful coping mechanisms as they struggle with the stress of their lives?
When children can’t cope, challenges become stressors and anxiety replaces anticipation. Children often get the message that their anxiety is something to get rid of or push away, but like all emotions our anxiety has a job to do.
In this engaging workshop, we explore embodied and effective ways to help prepare children for anxiety-producing situations, navigate stress, reduce overwhelm and reactivity, and harness their capacity for self-compassion.
Leave with a new framework for relating to anxiety, along with concrete practices to help children learn to access their inner resources, calm their anxiety, transform their relationship to stress, and thrive even when life is challenging.
This workshop is designed for parents and other caregivers, educators, health-care providers, counselors, coaches, and others who find anxiety and stress impacting the children in their care. Content applies to children up through the teen years (and you may just find some practical applications for navigating your own worries as well).
