Recognising Anxiety in Children and Healing Them

Half-Day Workshop

This workshop is for everyone who has contact with children and to benefit from learning about anxiety in children.

Children are increasingly exposed to traumas such as divorce and family breakdowns, crime and violence, physical and emotional abuses and producing anxiety in many cases. Anxiety in children is an increasing emotional disorder in modern society.

It is difficult to estimate because anxiety is invisible and is often overlooked and untreated because of a widespread belief that it is are harmless and that children will grow out of them.

This is a myth. In fact, prolonged anxiety will diminish physical health, as well as, emotional and social development in children.

Children and adolescents will have learning-impaired issues, behaviour problems and without help, will grow up to anxious adults with medical problems or develop more serious anxiety disorders.

It is therefore imperative that we need to arrest anxiety in children early for a brighter future for them.
