Therapy Group for Anxious ChildrenThis eight-week program provides a structure for children to learn about anxieties and worries using the concept of Worry Dragons. Ideally, it is for children ages 8 to 12 but can be easily adapted for both younger and older children. The focus is on understanding and identifying anxiety and how it affects the body, thoughts and behaviors. Children learn and practice coping strategies and tools for conquering physical and emotional symptoms related to anxiety. Children learn how to prepare a worry tool box to trap and tame their dragons. Each of the 8 sessions are approximately 60 to 75 minutes long.
