Making Sense of Anxiety in Children & Youth

Registration is now Open!

5 Thursday Evenings starting September 21st | 7:30-9:00 PM
Zoom Webinar

The escalating level of anxiety in our children begs for an explanation as well as a solution. Dr. Gordon Neufeld sheds light on this age-old problem, paving the way for natural interventions that can actually get to the root causes as opposed to just managing symptoms. Although the focus is on children, this enlightening material will benefit anyone suffering from anxiety.

As we enter into a new school year, the Archdiocese of Vancouver is pleased to one again be offering Making Sense of Anxiety in Children and Youth, a Dr. Neufeld video course with discussion facilitated by Kevin Bredeman M.A.
