Children & Anxiety: Nurturing Anxious Children

Only 1 in 5 children in Canada who need mental health services ever receives professional help. As educators, we have a unique position to influence and nurture emotionally healthy practices in our classrooms and greatly curb this statistic. In this workshop we learned:
• what anxiety is and how to manage it effectively when it presents itself
• about the critical role that emotions play in early childhood development
• how to build the confidence to manage the emotional world with children and build their emotional intelligence muscle
• about the importance of emotional connection and why it’s the missing link to helping children combat anxiety and stress
• to create the building blocks for an emotionally healthy learning environment
• to establish and sustain well-being in your school community.
