Children & Anxiety: What is it & what to do about it? (Clayfield QLD)
November 16, 2017, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmBrisbane, Qld
For parents of children 12 & under
with Maggie Dent & Dr Kaylene Henderson
Anxiety is now the most common and fastest growing childhood mental health issue – so how do we support our children when they struggle in our chaotic, fast-paced, screen-obsessed world? In this seminar, parenting author, educator and resilience specialist Maggie Dent teams up with child psychiatrist and educator Dr Kaylene Henderson to explore what anxiety is and what to do about it.
Dr Kaylene will kick off the evening by examining how to build secure relationships with children and how to respond to emotional distress, before unplugging anxiety: what it looks like, why it happens, when it’s a problem and how to help.
Maggie will explore self-regulation for children and offer simple, effective strategies to bring more silence, stillness and calm into our homes.
Time: 6.30pm-9pm (doors open 5.45pm)
Bookings: Please book online at www.trybooking.com/RVGB
Please note this event is general admission (so you can sit wherever you like) and babes in arms are welcome at Maggie’s seminars.
