AUT207-21 Introductory Webinar - Parenting Your Anxious Child – Helping your Worrier find their Inner Warrior

Experiencing anxiety can be debilitating for a child when the fear of being disconnected from their primary attachment figure becomes so great that in a bid to avoid it, their world dramatically shrinks. They may become unable to go on play dates, participate in extracurricular activities or even attend school.

A child experiencing anxiety is operating from the emotional centre of the brain - logic and reason are inaccessible. To counteract the effect the anxiety has, a parent must first connect with their child and then continue to relate through an attuned and sensitive relationship to re-engage the reasoning part of the child’s brain. This is easier said than done!

Parenting an anxious child with such a need for attachment can be stressful, frustrating and heart breaking in equal measure. It can be difficult to imagine them ever transitioning from worrier to warrior.

This introductory workshop will support parents to
- Understand anxiety and the impact it has on a child’s way of being
- Respond to those anxieties in a child centered, playful way
- Learn strategies to re-create a secure base from which the child can explore the world
- Explore how anxiety can lead to school refusal
