Teen Addressing Anxiety

Course Overview

In this workshop, I aim to equip young people and parents with an invaluable ‘tool kit’ which will enable them to better understand and manage anxiety going forward. I want to encourage them to share their experiences in order to connect with families and build a sense of community as we learn together to overcome challenges.

Course Content

Week 1 (Taster) : What is anxiety and where does it come from?

 

We look at how your body and brain work together and how some anxiety is good for you! The cavemen had a lot to do with it…

 

Week 2: Talking it Through

 

A guided talk with a chance to connect with others and share thoughts and ideas around our experiences of anxiety and the effect it has on our lives.

 

Week 3: Coping and Calming

 

An in-depth look at some extremely effective ways of coping with anxiety including grounding, mindfulness, visualisation, and relaxation techniques which can be practiced alone or with others.

 

Week 4-9: Focusing on the finer details

 

Through weeks 4-9, we will be looking at the group’s individual needs, sharing the week’s experiences, and setting individual and group  homework

 

Week 10: Conclusion

 

We will learn about our patterns of anxiety and look at some specific situations such as entering new environments, public speaking, and exams. We will look at how to ‘see it coming’ in order to better prevent and deal with it in stressful situations.
