Moving Kids from Anxiety to Resilience

Monday Series 2019

This presentation will help parents to recognise and understand anxiety, how it impacts on learning and happiness and learn practical steps to lessen its impact on a child’s and family’s life.

In this presentation you’ll learn:

  • What’s behind the current epidemic of childhood anxiety
  • Key lifestyle factors that will minimise anxiety
  • How to respond rather than react emotionally when kids become anxious
  • Key tools to teach kids so that they can regulate their own anxious states
  • A practical definition of resilience that puts parents at ease and supports children and young people to thrive

An author, speaker and educator, Dr Jodi Richardson is dedicated to helping parents and teachers understand anxiety in their children and students; how it makes them feel (and why), and how to respond in ways that empower anxious kids with the insights and skills they need to thrive.

Jodi has developed her expertise over two decades of professional work in teaching, wellbeing, clinical practice and elite sport; including working for beyondblue on the national schools-based initiative for the prevention of depression.

A mother of two primary-school-aged children, she is the founder and director of Happier on Purpose and the co-author of Anxious Kids: How children can turn their anxiety into resilience
