From Anxiety to Resilience

Today, more and more children are affected by anxiety to the point of it impacting on their happiness and quality of life. Although anxiety can be a major problem, it doesn’t have to be a lifelong struggle. Our anxiety to resilience presentations have been created to help the parents and teachers of children with anxiety.

Anxiety amongst children and young people is on the rise. Research informs us that anxiety left unmanaged in childhood will almost always reoccur in adulthood. Fortunately there’s so much we can do to help kids turn their anxiousness into real, lifelong resilience.

  • explore the origins of anxiety and why we are in the grip of an epidemic
  • show a new research-based approach to anxiety
  • introduce the tools to develop in kids for self-regulation
  • explain the importance of resilience promotion in kids and the critical traits and parenting style that contributes to resilience
