Learn skills and strategies to better understand your child's anxiety and how to respond in ways to support their anxious symptoms. Based from neuroscience, learn about how the brain and nervous system respond to stress and anxiety, learn about fight, flight, freeze, and fawn response and understand more about your child's stress responses. We will explore how anxiety can be helpful and not necessarily something we want to get rid of, but rather to create shifts so it doesn't interfere with your child's functionality. In this workshop you will learn different strategies including validating feeling, co-regulation, making a plan, realistic thinking, challenging your thoughts, exposure therapy and more. You will also learn evidence-based strategies for supporting your child in various environments and the importance of play!
