December Coffee with the Counselor Event0
by signewhitson in Uncategorized
This school year, I’m offering monthly Coffee with the Counselor events at my school on the first (or second!) Friday of each month. Coffee with the Counselor mornings will provide an informal opportunity for parents & caregivers to discuss issues related to child and adolescent development, mental health, social & emotional development, and general well-being. I’ll share interesting resources and recommend readings on selected topics, to inspire discussion within the group.
On December 6th, we’ll be focusing on stress & anxiety in young people. We’ll look at the brain-basics of why kids worry and discuss how to use our knowledge of the brain to counter the repetitive negative thoughts that can create worry and anxiety.
