REMINDER - Parent University: Parenting Anxious Kids, Dec 6th (with room change)

posted Nov 30, 2017, 12:46 PM by Tammy Tarling


*Please note the room change from the MIW Library to the MIW Multipurpose Room due to high attendance*
Please join us on Wednesday, December 6th at the Mabel I Wilson Multipurpose Room6-8pm, for this interactive session led by Elizabeth Kubik, anxiety expert and PhD in Clinical Psychology.
All children experience worry and anxiety as they grow up and up to 20% have a diagnosable anxiety disorder.  
Parents often cope with their children’s worry and fear by providing constant reassurance (“There is nothing to worry about, you will do fine on the test” ) and by helping their kids to avoid fearful situations (“If you are too scared to take the bus, I will drive you to school”) because nothing else seems to work.  Yet these comforting responses don’t solve the problem and ultimately impair the development of skills and tools for handling worry and anxiety.  
This session (1 hour presentation + Q&A and discussion time) will teach parents how anxiety works and will outline a practical, research-based approach for parents to help their anxious children become more independent and courageous - and ultimately more fully engaged in life.  
Space is limited. Please register for this free session or visit our website for information.
