Dr. Samantha Morrison, PhD from CUCARD clinic will be speaking
The talk will be moderated by Bridget Poznanski, B.S., Program Coordinator for the Youth Anxiety Center at CUCARD
The talk will focus on discussing common anxiety issues that arise at the start of the school year and ways for parents to help their children cope with these situations. Some of these issues may include trouble with peer groups and making new friends, dealing with new or difficult teachers, increased academic and performance anxiety, separation anxiety and worries about being away from parents after spending a lot of time with them over the summer, or transitional issues such as starting at a new school and moving into middle school.
