Modeling Matters: What Parents Need to Know (and Do) to Decrease Stress, Worry, and Anxiety in Kids

May 9 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

The Needham Community Council is excited to announce the next installment of its Mindful Community speaker series, featuring esteemed psychotherapist, Lynn Lyons. Lyons will share her insights and expertise about decreasing stress, worry and anxiety in kids through modeling. Current news about young people and mental health has created warranted concern, but the information can be overwhelming and hard to sort through. Parents need strategies to help their children manage their anxiety, moods, and social pressures. Based on current research and over 30 years of clinical experience, Lynn Lyons will talk with attendees about the common traps adults fall into and the key adjustments needed to prevent and help mental health challenges in our kids. Lynn Lyons is a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist in Concord, New Hampshire. She has been in private practice for 30 years specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders in adults and children. She is an author/coauthor of several books and articles on anxiety. Lynn is a featured expert in the new documentary Anxious Nation and is the co-host of the popular podcast Flusterclux, and has appeared in the New York Times, Time, NPR, Psychology Today, Good Morning America, and other media outlets. The event is open to the public and registration is encouraged. To register, please visit https://bit.ly/MindfulMay9. For more information visit www.needhamcouncil.org/programs.
