Solution Focused Approaches to Anxiety – a Toolkit for Parents | 8 November 2017

Anxiety is the number one mental health issue in Australia.

One in 14 young Australians aged between 4 and 17 experienced an anxiety disorder in 2015, according to Beyond Blue. This represents about  278,000 young people.

Anxiety is something most people experience at different points in their life. But when it persists and becomes overwhelming, impacting day-to-day living over a long period of time, that’s when anxiety is a problem.

Identifying the signs is important because anxiety is treatable. As many parents and teachers will know young children and teens can suffer with anxiety.

In this free webinar for parents, Lyn Worsley, Director of The Resilience Centre, will share her experience, insights and professional advice on:

  • the long vs short term perspective on anxiety
  • is anxiety catching?
  • solution-focussed approaches to dealing with anxiety
  • basic everyday strategies that can be used at home to reduce anxiety.

Dr Worsley is a Clinical Psychologist and Registered Nurse with extensive experience in teaching, youth work, early childhood, hospitals and correctional services. She specialises in child, adolescent and family psychology and relationship issues. She is also author of The Resilience Doughnut Book – The Secret of Strong Kids and The Resilience Doughnut Book – The Secret of Strong Adults.
