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 in this online course 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 focuses 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.

This revolutionary course is taught by Registered Child Psychologist, Tammy Schamuhn, M.Sc, B.Ed., RPT-S, who specializes in childhood anxiety and trauma (Co-Founder of the Institute of Child Psychology) who is also a former elementary teacher, and mother of three.

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

    “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. . . but now I am armed with the proper tools to help us both navigate this journey with anxiety.”

  3. Shauna Lawrie

  4. 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.”

  5. Meagan Marriott

    “I work in this field myself and I have attended 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 course 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 an even more conscious and meaningful way. Thank you for that.”

  6. Ana Valencia

    Thank you so much for sharing your kindness, understanding, and knowledge with us. 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 course. 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
