Calming Teen Stress and Anxiety
Resourcing our adolescents for challenging times. A webinar with Maggie Dent.
Get lifetime access to the replay and additional resources.
For parents/carers & educators. Teens 14+ welcome.
Stress and anxiety are not all bad. In fact, they can become a super power at times. When they are unhelpful and problematic, though, we can learn new habits that can change our neurochemicals and our emotions and transform that inner dialogue!
Adolescence is by nature stressful because there is so much change and uncertainty – often invisible stuff – happening in our brains and bodies.
Add to this the busy pace of life today and the stresses and pressures that come with that and we see that our teens are being impacted – and this was happening even before the global pandemic!
In this webinar, parenting author, educator and former high school teacher and counsellor Maggie Dent will explore stress and anxiety and how adolescents (and their parents/carers) can better understand and cope with it.
In this session, Maggie will:
→ explore the many reasons why teens can struggle with stress
→ share the neuroscience around anxiety
→ teach about neurochemicals and how they can be changed
→ help teens create their own map of stressors and helpful strategies
→ explore latest information about lowering stress holistically
→ show you how to build and nurture inner bravery
→ explore the importance of connection and communication
→ show how parents can help
→ share help-seeking strategies/helpful sites and resources.
Let’s resource our teens and their parents/carers to to better cope with stress and anxiety.
Please encourage your teens (14+ recommended) to join you in watching this webinar as it’s a great way to open up conversations about their mental health and self care - see FAQs below if you have questions around this.
Maggie shared some valuable tools for them to use to prevent stress and anxiety getting on top of them, and knowing what to do when it does. And if they don’t want to join you, don’t worry, you’ll get loads of tips and strategies you can share with them
