This interactive session will help parents and students understand anxiety and how it presents in children and adolescents. A detailed description of anxiety will be included: what it is, what it looks like across the developmental life span, and when it becomes problematic. Factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of anxiety will also be discussed.
The second half of the workshop will offer the parents and students a step-by-step guide of how to manage anxiety using evidence-based treatment. Parents will be provided with information about what to consider when collaborating with the school and mental health professionals and resources. A Q&A period will also be included, although questions are encouraged throughout the workshop.
