Does your child or the children you work with struggle with anxiety: panic attacks, separation anxiety, stomach aches, headaches, tantrums, obsessions/compulsions, avoidance of activities, racing thoughts, or troubles with sleep? 

Anxiety has many faces, and at this workshop parents, caregivers, and professionals will learn about the psychological and physiological roots of anxiety, why it is on the rise in our children, and what to do to help children better manage it. Research and theory in the field of mental health and interpersonal neurobiology will be explored and attendees will be given resources and direct tools to help their child, or the children they work with, overcome this emotional obstacle. This presentation is appropriate for parents, caregivers, teachers, and mental health professionals

  • Describe ways in which parenting styles can contribute to anxiety in children

10 reviews for Childhood Anxiety: Helping Children Heal (Online Course)

  1. Meagan Marriott

    I work in this field myself and I go to a lot of (courses) on childhood mental health. This was informative, straight forward, and deeply touching. Tammy’s no-nonsense style drove some important points home and left me with a lasting impression. I absolutely loved that her whole presentation was geared to what we, the adults in the child’s life, can do – not what the child needs to do/fix/improve on. I feel motivated and enlightened to personally take on parenting in a even more conscious and meaningful way. Thank you for that.

  2. Shauna Lawrie

    I walked away from this (course) with lots of ideas to help our daughter as well as our family. I enjoyed the way she presented her real life experiences, videos, literature and PowerPoint presentation. It was definitely a worthwhile (course) that I feel every parent, caregiver or educator would benefit from

  3. Brandi. L

    Thank you so much. You gave us so much to think about in how we interact with our son. I have honestly noticed a difference in his behaviour, his interactions with his siblings, and the way we are approaching his anxiety

  4. Cammie Duong-Woo

    We felt the (course) was full of useful information. We immediately set to work the child attachment strategies that very same day and noticed changes with our children.

  5. Kyla Dugatie

    We I feel I have a better understanding of my own children and what they need from me . . I would recommend this training to all parents and caregivers

  6. Danial Kerr

    We really had our eyes opened to a lot of different things

  7. Justin Schumacher

    As a newly appointed Educational Assistant, it was helpful to have a better understanding of how to empathize with a frazzled child. This (course) equipped me with several tools on how to identify a child that may have unhealthy levels of stress

  8. N.K.

    Overall I found this (course) very informative with relevant information that was easy to understand, and I left feeling empowered and ready to help my child with anxiety! Highly recommended to anyone with a child with anxiety or even to parents who just want to better understand some of their child’s behaviors!

  9. Elizabeth S

    This (course) opened my eyes to what is going on in my stepson ‘s brain. How my efforts to help at this point have been somewhat futile and me feeling exhausted has changed to me feeling recharged gaining a new perspective- I am now armed with the proper tools to help us both navigate this journey with anxiety

  10. Kailynn Taylor

    Being a social worker student working in a school setting, I’ve seen a lot of anxiety of various degrees from students. This workshop was a great introduction into understanding anxiety and strategies to use when helping a child who is experiencing anxiety. Loved the (course)!
