Please join us in The Living Room for an informative evening with Karen Young discussing anxiety.
Anxiety in Children & Teens Anxiety is a very normal part of being human, but for as many as one in five children and adolescents, it can reach intrusive levels, interfering with family life, friendships and school performance. This transformational session will provide parents and carers with the essential information and powerful, practical, research-driven strategies to help their children and teens thrive through anxiety, whether it’s everyday levels of anxiety or more intrusive.
