with Karen Young and Michelle Mitchell

What could our children do if they truly believed they were brave?

We will explore:

  • the often unrecognised and different ways anxiety can manifest in children;
  • the impact of anxiety on friendships and school work;

  • how to build social resilience and equip them for the challenges of life;
  • how to strengthen your connection and influence.
