Take Back Your Island (from Anxiety)

Summer is here! The warm sun of summer often encourages us to engage in new commitments and patterns as we look ahead with hope, making, for some, new seasonal resolutions. Often, those of us hoping for change are facing some kind of fear, whether it’s fear-of-the-new or fear-of-changing-the-old.

On Parenting a Child with Anxiety

I sometimes get questions from people asking about identifying and treating anxiety in children, in particular social anxiety in children. "What do I do as a parent or teacher? How do I recognize social anxiety disorder in my child?" The short answer is a) be patient and supportive, b) listen to your child, a lot, and c) notice what they do, what their body says…and what they avoid.
