This practical workshop is designed for those working with children, teens or adults who are experiencing heightened intrusive anxiety, during, or following, challenging life situations. We will look at some case study examples as we go.

This workshop will look at:
- Anxiety rates in NZ - a statistical snapshot.
- Why tough life situations increase anxiety.
- The nature of anxiety - its causes and brain response.
- Anxiety’s continuum and impact - physically, cognitively, emotionally, spiritually, behaviourally.
- Recognising the signs - the obvious and the masked - in different ages and stages.
- The difference and similarities between depression and anxiety.
- When anxiety becomes more ‘disordered’.
- Recognising when and how to help someone access more specialist help.
- Support tools, resources, apps and strategies available to assist different ages and stages to manage heightened anxiety.
- The role of resilience building in anxiety prevention and management - what part can you play?
- Self-care - when others’ anxieties raise your own stress levels.

Light refreshments included.
