Victorian ADHD Conference 2024

‘Confident and curious: How to help anxious, neurodivergent children and teens reduce worrying and gain confidence to handle challenges of daily living’

In this session, Dr. Saline, author of What your ADHD child wishes you knew: Working together to empower kids in school and life and The ADHD Solution Deck, discusses how anxiety works and what professionals and caring adults can do to assist neurodivergent children, teens and emerging adults in reducing their worries and improving their resiliency. After examining the physiology and psychology of anxiety, she will discuss how to change an individual’s relationship to worry, reduce negative thinking, and uncover the core limited beliefs that fuel persistent social anxiety, perfectionism and procrastination. Participants will learn how to help kids and young adults evaluate their strengths, try new behaviors, reduce harmful comparisons and develop self-soothing techniques in both familiar and novel situations.
