An increasing number of kids and teens are facing unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and despair. With these mental health challenges, on top of the normal ups and downs of childhood and adolescence, it can make parenting feel even more difficult. In this workshop, Dr. Chinwe’ Williams and Will Hutcherson will guide parents and caring adults in understanding what’s going on in the brain of a child experiencing chronic anxiety or despair, and the most effective ways to respond in the moment. While learning about practical neuroscientific strategies and hearing personal stories, you will walk away with five simple— yet powerful tools— to foster healthy coping skills in your child while promoting emotional resilience and connection.
