FREE INFO NIGHT WITH DR. LAPOINTE: PARENTING THE CHILD WITH ANXIETY
May 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
PARENTING THE CHILD WITH ANXIETY: Supporting Children Struggling with Anxiety
The purpose of this workshop is to provide a framework for parents who are working to support and nurture a child who is struggling with anxiety.
Anxiety comes in many shapes and sizes, and manifests differently for younger children than it does for older children and adults.
Participants will learn about the different forms of anxiety that are commonly diagnosed in children (including Separation Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Phobias, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, among others).
We will work to understand what unites these different expressions of worry and how to best support the child feeling overwhelmed by such worry so that participants leave with a better sense of how to help put a child’s worry monster to rest.
REGISTRATION IS NOT NECESSARY
