An evening discussion with Ori Kilner, Holistic Wellness Expert:
How to support your child by understanding the signs of anxiety and overwhelm

and the tools that manage them

Along with a healthy lifestyle there are many ways parents can help their children deal with anxiety and depression that may emerge in teen years. In this presentation, Ori Kilner, a holistic wellness expert, will discuss how to recognize signs of anxiety and depression and how to address them with your child.

There have been many studies that prove that apart from therapy with a certified specialist, SSRI’s, and perhaps a few other therapies; it has been found that meditation and mindfulness practices can be the best way to identify, manage, and alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, overwhelm, and depression. Parents will leave this session with practical tools and an understanding of what they can do and when they need to reach out for help.
