EXPERT: Dr. Caroline Buzanko PhD, RPsych, Clinical Director at Koru Family Psychology, Calgary
Anxiety is at epidemic levels among children and is the most common mental health concern they face. Anxiety is not something you outgrow, and early intervention helps minimize later problems with depression and other social, emotional, behavioural, and physical difficulties. Unfortunately, most kids go without effective support until too late, if at all. Since 70% of all mental health problems begin in childhood and adolescence, there is a clear need to support our children and youth.
In this workshop, parents, teachers, and professionals will learn how traditional ways of helping children and teens may unwittingly worsen their anxiety. They will also learn about the anxiety compass, which outlines eight essential steps in helping children and teens manage anxiety effectively.
