Making Sense of Anxiety in Children and Youth

with Dr. Gordon Neufeld on May 16

Why is anxiety becoming an epidemic among children of all ages?Dr. Gordon Neufeld sheds fresh light on this problem, paving the way for natural interventions that focus on the root causes as opposed to just managing the symptoms.  


Have you ever wondered why some children respond to anxiety differently from others? Join us for “Making Sense of Anxiety in Children and Youth.” Humans were built to feel alarmed and anxious but we are sometimes confused at its appearance and how to respond as parents.

Anxiety is often present for young children, particularly separation anxiety and is often misunderstood thereby exacerbating instead of alleviating symptoms.

In this special Speakers Series event, Dr. Gordon Neufeld will explore the roots of anxiety along with how to respond in ways that are productive and supportive.

Dr. Neufeld's presentation will be followed by his dialogue with Maria LeRose, award-winning television producer who has moderated panels featuring the Dalai Lama, Mikhail Gorbachev, Sir Ken Robinson and other luminaries.
