Anxiety: it’s everywhere, but where does it come from? Why is it so prevalent and what do we do with it? In our world today, many are focused on how to get rid of anxiety or make it better. By embracing anxiety, we can reduce the need for adaptive behaviors that focus on getting rid of anxiety or relieving the negative feelings. Children cannot change this on their own and need the parent-child relationship to support the change. This workshop will help caregivers deepen their understanding of anxiety and learn how to embrace it for themselves and their child.
