Help for Children with Anxiety (Part II)

Final Parent University of the Year: Help for Children with Anxiety (Part II)
Tuesday, June 7th, 10:00-11:30 in the LLC
Presenters: Jennifer O’Dwyer, School Psychologist and Carol Bloch, School Social Worker

Much of the feedback from the last Parent U session on Anxiety related to having a forum where parents can bring up specific examples and situations they would like help with and to learn strategies to better manage anxiety for their own children. In order to best structure and provide relevant resources for this meeting, we’d like to gather some information on topics within the realm of Childhood Anxiety that you are most interested in exploring. We look forward to seeing you there!
