This self-paced program is for parents who have concerns about the anxiety their child or children are experiencing. The program is delivered as a series of videos that allows for you to work through with a workbook, to complete at your convenience.
This program is delivered by Kate French a Clinical Psychologist who has been working with families and children for the past 16 years across a variety of settings. Whilst the program is not a replacement for individual therapy, it provides educational content that can be a great first step at understanding the experiences of your child. It provides parents with the steps to take that help build confidence in responding to children when they are most anxious.
Included in the program is an introduction to understanding anxiety’s causes and the role of the greatest influence on positive outcomes for children, which is you and your responses to your child.
It will encourage you to reflect on your style as a parent and implement some strategies designed to build your child’s resilience. It will also include some ways you can begin coaching your child about their body, their brain, their anxiety and the way they can make a difference to how they feel.
It takes you through understanding the physiology of anxiety, self talk and sensory tools and interventions to help with anxiety. It also guides you through learning about breathing and mindfulness skills.
