As part of its Community Wellness Series, University Liggett school welcomes parents of all children to attend “Coping Strategies for Youth Stress and Anxiety,” from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 23 in the school auditorium.
This panel discussion will help parents understand not only how to help the stressed or anxious child cope with these feelings, but also how they as parents can model positive coping strategies. Child and family psychologists Dr. Marquita Bedway and Dr. Kara Brooklier, alongside University Liggett School School Psychologist Michelle Ondersma, will lead the discussion, which will include open dialogue for attendees with questions.
Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at a higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.
