We have an amazing workshop coming up with clinical social worker Jillian Rudnitsky called Becoming Unstuck: How to cope with anxiety in adulthood.

Anxiety in children and adolescents is an extremely hot topic right now. So hot in fact that we often forget to take care of ourselves and prioritize our own well-being. This workshop will focus on how anxiety manifests itself in adults and how to develop your own level of resiliency as a parent, as a professional and, most importantly, as a person. The goal is to give you strategies that will help you regain control over your life so that you can tolerate situations that are currently a source of your discomfort. One of the biggest sources of this discomfort is the idea of transition and change. Whether it is something planned or something that takes you by surprise, change can be extremely anxiety provoking. Together we are going to explore the elements of change and how to move with them instead of becoming stuck.
With so much focus placed on our children, adult anxiety is often overlooked and our relationships can suffer as a result. Join me in learning how to take care of yourself in order to better take care of those around you.

COST: $40 per person
Limited spaces available.
