Anxiety is a normal human reaction that warns us when we are about to do something dangerous. For some children everyday things trigger this normal response too easily and they may find themselves avoiding more and more experiences or objects as a way to calm the uncomfortable feelings. However this doesn't make the anxiety go away, it may make it trigger even more easily in future. This 3-session course is to help parents help their child to manage their anxiety in a structured and supportive way. Each week we'll be sharing successes and concern as well as exploring techniques to implement at home. The goal is for children to accept and manage the feelings rather than avoid them - which in time means they will get triggered less and less.
The course is intended to be both a learning space and a support space for parents dealing with children with occasional or moderate anxiety. Please note that whilst the ideas and support on offer will be helpful to all parents living with an anxious child, more extreme anxiety may require specialist help.
