Coaching for Confidence

November 07, 2017

NOVEMBER 21, 2017


Presented by Dr. John Walker,

Professor – Department of Clinical Health Psychology, University of Manitoba and Director of the Anxiety Disorders Program, St. Boniface Hospital.

Shyness and anxiety are normal human emotions.  Some children, however, are much more shy or fearful than the average child.  For these children, anxiety may interfere with their enjoyment of school, activities with other children, new experiences (Swimming lessons, birthday parties, etc.), and their development of independence and confidence.  In this session, parents will learn about anxiety in children.

Workshops will be held from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at Jameswood Community School (Educational Support Services), 1 Braintree Crescent.  Free pizza supper will be offered from 6:00pm – 6:30pm and session will take place from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.  To register please contact Debbie Neufeld at 204-885-1334. 

FREE CHILDCARE IS PROVIDED FOR SESSIONS.  When registering please indicate for how many children and their ages.  Once registered for any session, IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND, please cancel by contacting Debbie Neufeld 204-885-1334.
