There's a free lecture coming up in Dublin on how to deal with kids' anxiety
A very worthwhile event.
The world can be a scary place when you're growing up, especially for kids and young people who sometimes struggle with their mental health.
Awareness of anxiety is on the rise but as parents do we really know how to help our kids through stressful situations and how to deal with bouts of anxiety in an unpredictable and often stressful world?
If this is something you'd like some guidance on, there's an event coming up in Dublin's UCD that you might want to head along to.
Psychologist David Coleman will be giving a free lecture entitled 'Scared Kids: Supporting children and teenagers growing up in an uncertain world' at the university in December.
David, who's best known as the presenter of RTÉ shows 21st Century Child, Teens in the Wild and Families In Trouble will focus on understanding how anxiety affects children, teenagers and families.
He'll share his practical tips for how to help children and teenagers to deal with the stresses and pressures in their lives.
There'll also be an open forum questions and answers at the end and anyone who works or is involved with children and young people, not just parents, is invited to attend.
The event tales place at from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday 12 December at the School of Psychology in UCD's Newman Building.
