Overcoming Anxiety and Worry Primary School Age Children

A guided programme delivered to parents/carers of children aged 5-12yrs presenting with Anxiety. This evidenced based programme teaches Cognitive Behavioural strategies so that parents/carers can use them with their child to overcome Anxiety. Whilst it is normal for children to have some worries and fears, we might become concerned when anxiety impacts on children’s general well-being, therefore, referrals should be considered for children who may:

  • Feel more anxious than other children their age and developmental stage
  • Cry when caregivers are dropping off at school.
  • Become irritable or clingy
  • Avoid games and activities
  • Be shy or nervous
  • Have difficulty sleeping or bed wetting
  • Show distress if presented with a ‘phobic’ object (e.g. spiders, dark spaces etc.)
  • Show distress or becoming upset when asked to take part in group work, or in reading aloud.
  • Avoid playing with friends/other children

Length of Intervention
