Parentshop – Anxiety Coach™ for Child & Family Specialists

A full day workshop for practitioners working with families on approaches to managing anxiety in young children

Parentshop presents Anxiety Coach™ for Child & Family Specialists

The course is based on three underlying perspectives: first, by having an understanding of how anxiety develops, community and family support workers can assist parents to counter its progress in children. Second, community and family support workers can assist parents to take a preventative role in the development of anxiety problems in 4 -12 year-olds. Third, there are practical steps parents can take to develop resilience thinking skills in 4 -12 year-olds. Previously called No Scaredy Cats.
