Teen anxiety is at an all-time high, and arming kids with healthy coping strategies is more important than ever. Is it alright to be an average teen in today’s world? What is the difference between success and perfection? Are your teens focused on avoiding failure or are they operating out of a place of achieving to their greatest ability, based on their individual strengths and weaknesses. This presentation will review specific interventions designed to assist children in managing their anxiety, as well as promote increased motivation, healthy goals setting and active school engagement. Factors that contribute to avoidant behaviors, as well as ways to early identify maladaptive coping responses will be explored. Attendees leaving the presentation will have learned how to develop parenting strategies to assist their children with healthy coping responses and engage them in effective communication and language that promotes self-advocacy and independence.
