Description

Is your child or teenager struggling to cope with anxiety? Are they struggling to go to school or friends’ houses? Are you worried that anxiety is taking over your home?

Are you struggling to help children and teenagers cope with anxiety as part of your work?

Would you like to know exactly what to do to help?

If so, join leading child psychologist, Catherine Hallissey, for a half-day workshop for parents and professionals to learn the skills needed to help children and teenagers overcome anxiety so they can thrive at home, in school and in their community.

The workshop is based on the latest research into what works with anxiety and Catherine's clinical experience as a senior psychologist in the HSE and private practice. While anxiety is the most common mental health issue facing Irish children, with one in three experiencing problematic anxiety over the course of their childhood, it is also the most treatable, once you get the right support.

"Anxiety in children is the biggest challenge I see in my clinical practice," says Catherine, "but it doesn't have to be."

What you'll learn:

  • why teaching children about anxiety is the first step in overcoming it

  • how to make small changes to the environment that lead to big changes for the child

  • how to reduce stress through practical, easy to use, calming and coping techniques suitable for both home and school

  • how to build brave steps into everyday life to overcome anxiety, one step at a time

  • where to go for further help

By the end of the workshop, you will have developed your own action plan that you can put into practice straight away to help the child or teenager in your life overcome anxiety.
