Back by popular demand! TTC presents author, educator, therapist Lynne Lyons: “Staying Ahead of Anxiety and Depression: Skills We Can (and Should) Be Teaching Our Children (& Teens)” – Monday, March 7th, 7:00pm in the Masco Auditorium
Many parents are unaware of the link between anxiety and depression, and are also unaware of the concrete skills we can teach children and teens that help to prevent and minimize the impact of these mental health issues. This workshop teaches an approach that normalizes worry and put families on offense rather than defense. The goal is not the elimination of symptoms, but the ability to respond and react to uncertainty and challenges in a different way. Most importantly, the skills in this approach are preventative as well as reactive. While the numbers of kids with diagnosed issues are far too high,
Lynn, with a special interest in breaking the generational cycle of worry in families, is the coauthor of two books on anxiety, “Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents: 7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous & Independent Children” (and a companion book for children) and “Using Hypnosis with Children: Creating and Delivering Effective Interventions”.
