Coping Strategies for Children with Anxiety New

The number of children with anxiety has risen over the last number of years, for many complex reasons.  Anxiety can have different symptoms, and usually causes distress to children and also limits their experiences.  It’s helpful to know that there are many things we can do to support an anxious child, including striking a balance between supporting them whilst also empowering them to deal with their anxious thoughts and feelings. This webinar will outline the protective factors in supporting children, as well as offering a number of evidence-based coping strategies that children can use to help them to feel safe, strong and confident.


Presenter: Fiona Forman (M. Sc Applied Positive Psychology)

Learning Objectives:

To enable participants to:

  • Understand the symptoms and causes of anxiety in children
  • Learn how to support children with anxiety
  • Develop a range of evidence-based coping strategies to help children to manage anxiety
