Anxious feelings can be an adaptive reaction to unexpected changes that alert us to danger and focus our attention. However, with the many unknowns associated with the pandemic, elevated stress reactions are common in both children and adults and anxiety can become overwhelming. Join Dr. Lauren Siegel and Dr. Ann Rowe of the Kingsbury Wellness & Learning Group to learn more about strategies to improve coping with uncertainty, different manifestations of anxiety for children at different developmental stages, and red flags that indicate more serious concerns about an anxiety disorder.
