Worry Dragons


“I LIKED…. That it let us talk about our feelings.” – Past Participant

Do you have a school age child who worries too much?
Worry Dragons is a group for children (ages 7 to 12) where they can learn to express their fears, worries, and anxieties, while helping to incorporate parents into their growth so they can have an active role in maintaining their children’s growth and learning. By attending this program, your child will improve on:

Understanding and identifying fears, worries, and anxieties
Understanding and exploring how fear affects the body, thoughts, and behaviour
Building self-confidence
Learning and using the new coping skills.

To achieve this, a focus will be placed on the following 5 group components:
Awareness – How do fears, worries, and anxieties impact the body
Kinds of worries
Courage and mind traps
Self-talk and relaxation
Accepting Praise and remembering success
