Do you sometimes wonder whether your child is too nervous and anxious? Are you worried about how your son or daughter reacts to everyday events and minor changes in schedule? Or do you notice your child emulating the anxieties you feel – and you want to help him or her avoid the same repercussions? The Modern Village has found an expert in managing anxiety to begin the journey with you, both for yourself and your child.
Dr. Anne Marie Albano is a well-respected professor of clinical psychology at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She also serves as Director of the Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders. Dr. Albano devotes her career to the study and treatment of anxiety and mood disorders in children, adolescents, and young adults, and she will be leading “The Anxious Child” within the continuation education series from The Modern Village.
As a part of this presentation, Dr Albano will review key issues for parents in helping their children transition to adulthood while learning to master anxiety and related emotions. Focal points include understanding the developmental tasks of adolescence, how to identify normal levels from disruptive levels of anxiety in your child, and how to recognize and support the skills for independent functioning (problem solving, social skills, assertiveness, and self-soothing). The final goal is to learn how to manage your own anxiety as a parent.
Do these concerns and issues resonate with you? Please join The Modern Village for this useful and action-oriented evening of information. Doors open at the offices of In Good Company (16 West 23rd Street, NYC) at 7 pm, and the presentation will run from 7:30 pm to 9 pm. Light refreshments and wine will be served.
