Northampton Public Schools Workshop with Dr. Sharon Saline on Zoom
For Parents & Caregivers of NPS Middle and High School Students
“Confident and Curious: How to help tweens and teens reduce worrying, navigate social challenges and develop the competence they need”
Are you concerned about the amount of anxiety your tween or teen lives with? In a world that’s increasingly unpredictable with new COVID challenges, today’s kids are more anxious and uncertain than ever before. For middle and high school students who are alternative learners–those with ADHD, ASD and learning disabilities, managing anxiety in conjunction with executive functioning deficits can seem especially daunting and unmanageable.
Dr. Saline discusses the psychological and biological roots of general anxiety, explains the causes and consequences of social anxiety and offers parents practical strategies for helping their kids calm down and build resilience. You’ll walk away with effective tools to help your tween or teen worry less, realistically evaluate situations and feel more confident.
