More children than ever seem to be struggling with anxiety. This parent workshop is designed to address why and what we can do about it. Many questions will be answered such as why are there more children struggling with anxiety than past generations, what is the difference between stress and anxiety, what is healthy vs. age appropriate anxiety, is anxiety genetic, environmental  or both, and what specific skills and techniques can you use to help your children become confident and courageous in the face of their anxiety. These topics and more will be discussed by Alicia Farrell, PHD and founder of Clearview Consulting.
