David Coleman - "Scared Kids: Supporting children and teenagers growing up in an uncertain world"
When we don't know what to expect we tend to get anxious. Unpredictability is stressful. Children and teenagers face many uncertainties in their lives, and anxiety among children is on the rise. In this presentation, David Coleman will focus on understanding how anxiety affects children, teenagers and families. He'll give concrete and practical tips for how to help children and teenagers to deal with the stresses and pressures in their lives. With David's usual blend of information, common sense, sensitivity and humour, and an open forum questions and answers at the end, the talk should be of interest to anyone living with, or working with children and teenagers.
