Make Your Worrier a Warrior
Dr. Dan Peters will discuss childhood anxiety
Dan Peters Book
Worry, fear and anxiety are common, yet often quiet "monsters" which have significant negative effects on a child's academic achievement, social and emotional functioning and self esteem.
You'll learn:
• The components of the brain and body responses for the fear and relaxation response
• Characteristics that make your child more susceptible to anxiety and how to identify behaviors associated with different types of anxiety
• The role of thinking in determining emotions and behavior
• Cognitive (thinking) and behavioral (doing) strategies for managing and overcoming anxiety
• Anxiety reduction and management plans for your child
