Tuesday, April 18, 2017

7:00 p.m.

JRHS Library 

High school students experience anxiety for many reasons and in different ways. Come and learn more about anxiety and how to help your child cope. Also experience an introduction to mindfulness and a brief meditation session.

You are encouraged to ask questions throughout the presentation.

Some of the ideas that Dr. Falk will address are:

  • What is anxiety?
  • Why do we experience anxiety?
  • What is the difference between normal anxiety and an anxiety disorder?
  • How can we help teenagers learn how to manage anxiety?
  • How to determine if professional help is needed, and what kind.
