TEEN ANXIETY: Making sense of it to better accompany them

Monday May 2nd - 7:00-8:30PM

Presented by Catherine Korah, Guidance Counsellor

Complementary Services - Riverside School Board

Humans have a built-in survival kit, which is meant to respond to perceived threats and keep us safe. Generally speaking, this response serves us quite well, especially when the threat is obvious and occasional. When our alarm system is working as it should it can be incredibly helpful to keep us safe, but what happens when the threat does not go away? 

This session will explore the roots of anxiety and offer practical suggestions for how we can support teens to find emotional rest.
