“Helping Adolescents with Anxiety” Thursday Jan 27 at 1 PM presented by Jason Krompinger, Ph.D. and offered through McLean Hospital. Free and open to all but pre-registration is required (scroll to end of description for link)
Description: Anxiety is something we all have, but too much anxiety has the potential to impact every part of a young person’s life, including their physical health, emotional well-being, and social habits. When a teen is overly anxious, they can feel isolated and misunderstood—and may have a difficult time opening up about their feelings. Are the symptoms of anxiety the same in kids and teens as they are in adults? How can we talk to adolescents about anxiousness? And is it ever too late to seek help for anxiety?
Join this online presentation as Jason Krompinger, PhD, provides tips to talk with teens about anxiety, explains the differences between types of anxiety, and answers questions about addressing stigma around the most common mental health disorder.
