Childhood anxiety and stress have skyrocketed as a result of the pandemic. Children grow by experiencing big and sometimes troubling emotions, and lately, a slew of troubling “big emotions” has emerged. Many kids are struggling with how to deal with anxiety and isolation and manage stress. They haven’t been taught ways to cope.

Join Janine Halloran, bestselling author of Coping Skills for Kids Workbook, for this webinar on strategies for dealing with childhood anxiety. Janine will share invaluable tips on how to teach kids safe and healthy coping skills.

Together we’ll explore various coping skills you can teach children who are experiencing anxiety and stress. We’ll go beyond “take a deep breath” and use shapes, body movement, words, and items to teach deep breathing. You’ll be able to understand the positive impact healthy coping skills can have on a child’s academic performance. And you’ll learn how coping skills can affect their ability to connect with others and their ability to maintain friendships.

Be prepared for some experiential learning and movement! We will also try different coping skills for childhood anxiety and stress—including grounding techniques, breathing exercises and body movements.

By the end of this training, attendees will be better able to —

  • Describe the positive impact coping skills can have for a child, and be able to use a simple and organized way to introduce coping skills to children
  • Identify and practise a variety of strategies to help children experiencing anxiety and stress
  • Identify ways to incorporate coping skills into everyday life for children, via peace corners and coping skills toolkits
