ANXIETY AND YOUR ADOPTED CHILD, TWEEN OR TEEN
Recognizing crippling anxiety; Communicating
with your anxious daughter or son; Sharing coping techniques
The beginning of the school year is upon us and adoptees, like their peers, are facing a host of potential stressors, that can result in crippling fears, tears, and sleep issues, among others. “Anxiety, not depression, is the leading mental health issue among American youth,” according to the Washington Post* and much of it centers around school life, where kids spend so many hours, as well as around social media. Early detection is important, as other mental issues (including bipolar disorder and depression) manifest early as anxiety. Communicating with your child about their anxiety is the first step toward giving them the help they need.
Join an afternoon workshop with a panel discussion led by Dr. Amanda Baden, including small breakout sessions to learn how you can identify and help to address anxiety through communications techniques.
TIME: 2:00 to 4:00 pm
LOCATION: To be announced
