Description of Program: Nearly 4.5 million children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with anxiety. It’s become a nationwide epidemic. What are the factors contributing to the development of childhood anxiety? Why is it that childhood anxiety seems to “stick” so easily? This seminar will discuss the problematic ways that anxiety is being reinforced by well-meaning caregivers and treatment options to unstick patterns of anxiety. This seminar will also feature a showcase of creative evidence-based interventions for childhood anxiety compiled and presented by the pediatric experts at Intuition Wellness Center.
