Anxiety Coping Skills Group
This research-supported treatment group helps children learn effective ways to deal with anxiety and stress. The skills training and practice exercises taught in this group will assist school-age children in the following:
- Recognizing anxious feelings and physical reactions to anxiety
- Clarifying thoughts and feelings in anxious situations
- Developing plans for effective coping
- Evaluating performance and giving self-reinforcement
The group is open to children between the ages of 8-13. Only 10 spaces are available. The fee for the entire eight-week program is $25 ($75 for non-residents) and includes a 58-page workbook for participants and a 25-page parent companion guide. The next session will meet on Tuesdays from 5-6 PM from October 10 - December 5, 2017 at the Maine Township Town Hall.
