Parenting Today: Childhood Anxiety
Join Carina McEvoy, Therapist and Author, for a talk about children’s anxiety in Gorey Library.
Anxiety is fast becoming an epidemic in our society. Children are struggling to cope in this digital age of constant demands on their attention and on that of their parents.
In this talk you will learn how modern society is contributing to our children’s anxiety levels. Discover from Carina how we can help to steer children away from serious mental health issues in the future by learning how to control anxiety in the present. Carina previously worked as a Secondary School teacher before qualifying in Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy. She has authored two books, ‘Sometimes I worry … how about you?’ and ‘Sometimes my child worries … what do I do?’.
Carina battled severe anxiety, depression, social phobia, OCD and self-harm in her teenage years and early adulthood. She works with parents and schools throughout Wexford to advise and support them in helping their children to overcome anxiety issues. She regularly speaks on local radio.
