"Making Sense of Anxiety in Children & Youth" presented by Dr Gordon Neufeld (delivered via video format.) Wednesday, November 12 from 6:30 to 8:00 Dr Neufeld addresses reasons why anxiety is becoming an epidemic among children of all ages, and sheds some fresh light on this problem, paving the way for natural interventions that focus on the root causes as opposed to just managing the symptoms. Colleen Clarke, facilitator and Parent in Residence for The F.O.R.C.E. Society for Kids' Mental Health, will also be sharing some new resources on anxiety, and some of her insight as a parent of a teen who struggles deeply with high anxiety.
This session will be followed by a discussion time and resource sharing for participants. Child care is available if you contact Robin at or phone 250 285 3185.
Quadra Literacy and Success by 6 sponsor these free presentation/discussion evenings for parents, grandparents and caregivers. Donations are appreciated and used to support events for children and families in our community.
