Anxious Kids is a seminar designed to help parents and teachers to better recognise, manage and minimise anxiety in children.
Taking place in Perth on Wednesday, 21 August 2019, Anxious Kids is presented by parenting expert, award-winning speaker and author Michael Grose, together with wellbeing expert and researcher Dr Jodi Richardson.
They will speak about the tools and strategies for helping children outlined in their highly acclaimed book Anxious Kids: How children can turn their anxiety into resilience, and present evidence-based approaches to managing kids anxiety.
"Disturbingly, it takes 8.2 years on average between the onset of symptoms and diagnosis of an anxiety disorder," explains Grose.
"For a child experiencing anxiety, that can mean many years of learning difficulties, unhappiness and lost opportunities."
"We believe this is an unacceptable statistic."
"Parents, teachers and other professionals who work with children play a critical role in helping kids to recognise and manage their anxious feelings. The seminar has been designed especially for them."
The Perth Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Perth mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
