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.

This course has a holistic* and strength-based approach that  focusses on what we as caretakers, parents, and professionals can do vs. stigmatizing children who are struggling. Various facets of the child’s environment will be explored that can contribute to a child’s emotional struggles.

Join Tammy Schamuhn, Registered Psychologist, Registered Play Therapist, and Co-Founder of the Institute of Child Psychology, as we explore the research and theory research and theory in the field of mental health, education, attachment, naturopathic medicine, and  interpersonal neurobiology will be explored.   Attendees will be given resources and direct tools to help their child, or the children they work with, overcome this emotional obstacle.

This workshop aims to enlighten, empower, and inspire those who take care of our children.


  • Identify neurobiological and physiological mechanisms that underlie anxiety
  • Describe ways in which parenting styles can contribute to anxiety in children
  • Implement a variety of emotion regulation strategies
  • Recognize environmental and societal factors that contribute towards the increase in anxiety amongst children

  1. Meagan Marriott

    I work in this field myself and I go to a lot of workshops/seminars on childhood mental health. This was informative, straight forward, and deeply touching. I am sure I was not alone in this as the energy in the room was palpable. 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 presentation 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 workshop 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 seminar 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 . . . we felt like Tammy was speaking directly to us. Even my husband was fully engaged!

  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 presentation equipped me with several tools on how to identify a child that may have unhealthy levels of stress.

    Overall I found this presentation very informative with relevant information that was easy to understand, and I left feeling empowered and ready to help my child with anxiety! Great presentation by Tammy, had my attention the entire time!! 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 session 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 presentation!

  11. Kathleen Chamberlain

    Wow, the best ever workshop I’ve ever attended in my whole life (career), thank you for visiting Calgary! Tammy, you have answered all the overwhelming dilemma I see in the children’s, family, and the world’s system of techno these days. Thank you for standing & advocating for what you believe in the world of social media of the children. Hope you will have another date like this here in Calgary so I can refer it to all the parents, caregivers, teachers I know. I will for sure shout to the world the answer to all the questions (like what I have) of the modern world of human kind in the gadgets today. More power to you & your team!

    Thank you so much for sharing your kindness, understanding and knowledge with us yesterday. 
    With a 4 month old at home I was feeling disconnected with my 9 year old son. I found that we were just butting heads over pretty much everything. We used to have such a close relationship before baby and I felt that no matter what I did I was just pushing him away 😢 Your deep knowledge about the anatomy of a child’s brain helped me understand my son better and relate to him in a way I thought was not possible prior to this workshop.  Thank you for giving me the tools that will help me get my little boy back and help him develop into a resilient and healthy teenager
