Event description

Description

Does your child's anxiety cause you anxiety? This workshop offers parents tools for understanding and managing anxiety in children with ASD and ADHD. We look at the specific nature of anxiety in these children and signs to watch out for. There will be some time to discuss individual examples and to give specific recommendations to parents. We will end with a relaxing demonstration of progressive muscle relaxation!

The workshop is led by Linda Campbell-Arthur, MA (Clin). Linda trained as a Clinical Psychologist in South Africa and ran a private practice there for 12 years, specialising in anxiety and depression. She has a son with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Panic Disorder, ADHD and learning difficulties. Linda is a Parent Support Worker with Family Matters at RUILS.

Lunch is provided.

Family Matters offers 1:1 support for parents and carers of children with extra needs. We can work with you to focus on areas of family life that are causing concern and identify steps to address them. We can provide information, support and advocacy services. If we can’t find an answer, we will find someone who can.

Family Matters run workshops and drop-in sessions at the Disability Action & Advice Centre, 4 Waldegrave Road Teddington TW11 8HT every 4th Tuesday of the month from 10am-1.0 except for school holidays. RUILS staff, including Sian Austin and Linda Campbell-Arthur from Family Matters, Alex Hardy from Independent Support & Sue Robson from the Sitting & Befriending service, are on hand to answer your questions.
