The next 2 part virtual parent workshop Nurturing Courage and Competence- Helping Your Child Cope with Stress and Anxiety will be offered live streaming on Tuesday December 7th and Tuesday December 14th from 7:30 to 9pm.
This workshop teaches parents about the nature of anxiety in children and cognitive and behavioral tools parents can use to help their child cope with anxiety. In addition, it can jump start or add to a child's individual treatment. Many parents say they do not get enough guidance on how to coach their children in anxious moments or how to handle day to day struggles. The second segment focuses on how to parent your child through typical difficult times for children with anxiety (e.g., trying new things, stomachaches, homework, and bedtime) using the tools from part 1.
Cost is $50 for both sessions, $75 for 2 adults same family (e.g parents, grandparent, nanny).
There will be two 90 minutes sessions online with a question and answer segments and interaction throughout the presentation. With the small size, it is hoped that parents can get some of the help and support they experience from each other during the in person version. The 2 meetings in December will be held 1 few week apart (given the holiday) to allow parents a chance to practice strategies and get feedback.
A follow on monthly parent support group is avaiable for interested parents
This worskop will be offered on a Saturday in the next few months if there is sufficient registration
