You may be experiencing feelings of real distress, whether that be physical, mental, or emotional stress, in your everyday life. However, with our committed team of Calgary Mental Health Professionals, you will experience “Serenity Now.”
Coping with Anxiety Group
Is your child excessively nervous about school or transitions?
Do they have difficulty adjusting to new situations, trying new things or meeting new people?
Do they complain of physical symptoms such as headaches or stomach aches on a regular basis?
If you answered yes to any of the above then this group is right for your child.
Worry Smart is a 4-week introductory psychoeducational group designed to teach children about anxiety and how to cope with anxiety with developmentally appropriate skills and techniques. Parents are requested to participate in the last 15 minutes of each session to review the skills and techniques learned in the group.
