A book which offers insight, advice and professional information about anxiety and children will be launched this Wednesday at MidCoast Libraries, Forster.
Teaching Kids to Manage Anxiety is the work of local author and practising occupational therapist, Deb Hopper.
Deb works in her private practice, supervises occupational therapists, is a casual academic lecturer in occupational therapy, and loves to create resources, online courses and books for adults and children.
She brings more than 21 years experience working with children and adults who struggle with autism, anxiety, emotional regulation and sensory processing difficulties and has used this experience to write this book.
Deb empowers parents and teachers to understand emotional regulation and provides practical strategies that help children to participate more fully in daily life.
Kids today are growing up in a fast-paced world where information and opportunity overload can be overwhelming.
‘Teaching Kids to Manage Anxiety’ offers parents and teachers simple strategies that can make a big difference in a child’s ability to cope.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase on the night and everyone is welcome to attend.
