Free Seminar Takes on Anxiety in Children and Teens
Richmond, Ky. (March 9, 2015) — The Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host a free seminar, “Anxiety in Children and Teens,” on Monday, March 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the Madison County Extension Office, located at 230 Duncannon Lane in Richmond.
This free workshop will explain anxiety, examining the signs and symptoms of anxiety in children and teens. The program will delve into various treatment options and tips to help children manage and cope. The seminar will be led by Lora Magness, a certified social worker with experience working with children in crisis.
“While many adults may be familiar with the signs and symptoms of anxiety, it can present differently in children and have an effect on social interactions and development,” said Magness. “This seminar will help parents recognize the signs and outline ways they can empower their child to take control of their anxiety.”
This seminar is part of Peace for Parents, an ongoing initiative that provides 60-90 minute seminars throughout the year on a variety of topics.
