Does your child suffer from excessive fears and worries, phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, or other anxiety related issues? Do you want to help your child push through his/her fears to become more resilient, independent, and happy? Anxious children often make anxious parents. While anxious parents can also make anxious children. Is your anxious child making you "walk on eggshells" and feel helpless? If so, this class is for you!
In this four week class, we will cover the basics of anxiety from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective. This will give you a better idea of the key areas to be looking for when your child is anxious. We will also discuss how to remain emotionally and physically neutral, while being empathetic to your child. You will learn Cognitive Behavioral parenting strategies to help your child be less dependent on you and more confident to work though anxious situations on his/her own.
