    • Middle School and High School Students are welcome to attend this presentation.          


    Description: According to studies by the Center for Disease Control, 1 in 6 students ages 2 to 8 years old experience a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder.  The CDC further states that anxiety disorders typically increase with the age of the student. Supporting our anxious children in all life domains, home, school and in the community is a pivotal point for their social and emotional well-being.

    •  Do you want to gain an understanding of the types of anxiety and how anxiety presents in children and adolescents?
    • Would you like to recognize behavioral, social and emotional responses to anxiety?
    • Can you better understand your own intensity and how it may impact our ability to support or respond to our children?
    • Let’s develop our self care strategies for parents and skills for supporting children's anxiety.
