Cool Kids: Anxiety Group
Child and Parent Anxiety Groups
Is your child experiencing difficulties managing worried thoughts and feelings? Is it starting to get in the way of school, home or friendships?
Treatment group for children who experience issues with anxious/nervous feelings, thoughts, or physical sensations. This evidence-based group utilizes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is a proven and effective treatment for anxiety.
The group consists of 8 child sessions and 8 parent sessions, run concurrently. Sessions are facilitated by a Registered Psychologist and Certified Child Life Specialist. Parents will also participate in an individual intake and feedback session. Child sessions will focus on introducing and practicing coping strategies, and parent sessions will focus on providing strategies that parents can use to support their children.
Goals of the group include:
- Recognizing the symptom of anxiety
- Learning alternate patterns of thinking/feeling
- Relaxation techniques and exposure exercises
- Helping parents recognize and validate anxious feelings, while developing strategies to encourage coping behaviours
Program Includes: 8 child sessions; 8 parent sessions; 30-minute intake appointment prior to the group starting; 30-minute feedback appointment after completion of the group
