Worry is a normal part of a child’s life. They might feel anxious before taking a test or making an important decision. But for many children, anxiety involves more than temporary worry. These children experience excessive worry for months or years about a variety of everyday things. Some children find it difficult to control the worry, and the feelings interfere with daily activities such as school work and social activities. On February 16th, join Dr. Erin D. Berman, Clinical Psychologist, for a webinar on anxiety disorders in children and learning different ways of thinking and reacting to anxiety-provoking situations.
