Anxiety and Depression Prevention: Skills We Can (and Should!) Be Teaching Our Children

 

October 2, 2018

7-9PM

Winchester High School Auditorium

 

Lynn Lyons, LICSW, will introduce techniques that will help your family learn to deal with anxiety and give you and your child the skills to:

 

  • Understand and respond to your body's physical stress responses
  • Move your family out of the "worry cult" (most parents unknowingly make anxiety STRONGER!)
  • Step into difficult situationsrather than avoid them
  • Focus clearly on goals, problem solving, and making adjustments...without being ruled by anxiety and worry
