It will also explore the various treatment options and tips to help children manage and cope. The seminar will be led by Lora Magness, a certified social worker with experience working with children in crisis.

“While many adults may be familiar with the signs and symptoms of anxiety, it can present differently in children and have an effect on social interactions and development,” Magness said. “This seminar will help parents recognize the signs and outline ways they can empower their child to take control of their anxiety.”
