Karen Young and the Annual General Meeting

May 18, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us via Zoom at our AGM on May 18, 2023 06:00 PM
Following the business portion of the meeting (6:00 to 6:30) we will have a very special presentation by
Australian Psychologist Karen Young on the topic of:

Anxiety and Attachment – How to Build Relationships that Build Brave Behaviour

Anxiety is one of the most pervasive mental health concerns of childhood and adolescence, but it is
very manageable. Modern insights have greatly expanded our capacity to support young people
through anxiety, and broaden their capacity to engage with all aspects of daily life with tenacious levels
of resilience and courage. This workshop will draw on neuroscience and a number of highly respected
therapeutic models to support practitioners and parents in deepening their understanding of anxiety in
young people, and the response that will serve to strengthen all young people against anxiety. This will
be bolstered by a ground-up approach, as we extend the exploration of what works, by understanding
‘how’. Through a series of experiential exercises, participants will have the opportunity to consolidate
learnings and expand their range of helpful interventions.

We will explore:

  • the different ways anxiety can manifest in young children and adolescents;
  • why popular responses to common behavioural challenges don’t work, and what to do instead;
  • the role of relational safety and attachment relationships in the therapeutic response to anxiety;
  • how to build high-quality relationships with children and teens and why this is a fundamental part
    of strengthening all children against anxiety;
  • making sense of separation anxiety and school refusal, and how to respond effectively to support
    brave behaviour;
  • the neural foundations of resilience, and the experiences that will nurture this;
  • how to support parents in being change-makers;
  • practical ways to respond to anxiety in the moment to make way for calm and courage;
  • the four key responses to anxiety, and how to use this to inform a more effective response;
  • the neuroscience of self-regulation, co-regulation, and the impact on anxiety immediately and in
    the long-term;
  • how a young person’s attachment history can impact anxiety and how to work with this in the
    therapeutic relationship.
