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 8 to 12 years old 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 7 parent-child sessions, which are facilitated by a Registered Psychologist. Sessions will focus on  helping children and parents understand anxiety symptoms, providing effective coping strategies, and teaching clients how to implement these strategies. Children will learn how to gradually increase their exposure to anxiety provoking situations and parents will learn how to encourage and support their children through these experiences.

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: 7 parent-child sessions; 30-minute intake appointment prior to the group starting; 30-minute feedback appointment after completion of the group
