Anxiety represents our body’s natural alarm system, signalling to us the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress. It is estimated that over a quarter of the population will experience anxiety and there is an increasing concern for rising anxiety among children and youth. In this webinar we will explore the natural purpose of anxiety and how it can become ‘disordered’ and the main principles to guide responding and supporting individuals struggling with anxiety.
