I will be speaking at the Lincoln School Auditiorium in Winchester at 7:00pm on April 12, 2016, sponsored by Winchester's Parent to Parent. The talk is free and open to the public.
Here's the talk preview:
Teens are stressed! In this presentation Rick Irving will explore causes of teen anxiety, how anxiety operates in children and teens, and what happens emotionally and biologically to the stressed youngster. He will also identify the signs/symptoms of stress (both normal and debilitating) and identify healthy and harmful coping skills. Parents will be given language and techniques to help their pre-teens and adolescents manage anxiety, maintain perspective, and develop necessary confidence and resilience.
