Connection is key. . .

Attachment is our preeminent need. We need safe, caring relationships as human beings to thrive– children or adults. It is through these connections that we thrive and build resiliency. 75% of the outcome of mental health treatment is dependant on the relationship between the helper and the helpee. If you want to help a child who is struggling with anxiety we first and foremost must examine is the quality of attachment that child has with the adult. If that attachment dance is out of sync it will significantly impair the child’s ability to regulate their feelings.

Never underestimate how important a warm, safe, and attuned relationship is to a child.
