Helping Families Manage Anxiety: Lynn Lyons at HHS, April 29
April 21, 2019
Lynn Lyons, a Concord, New Hampshire, psychotherapist, author and expert on treating, managing and avoiding childhood anxiety, will speak on Monday, April 29, at 7 p.m. at Hanover High School Auditorium.
Lyons, author of Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents: 7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Playing with Anxiety: Casey’s Guide for Teens and Kids, is known for her concrete and accessible approach to helping families break the cycle of anxiety.
“We tend to want to give children reassurances and information and to tell them that everything will be OK,” Lyons said in a recent interview with Time magazine.
“But the trick is to give kids the skills they need to manage realistic pressures and uncertainties.”
Lyons will help parents understand anxiety and provide strategies to help their children understand what is happening in their bodies when they are anxious. Importantly, Lyons will discuss the tools parents need to help their children face anxiety and uncertainty safely and successfully.
