An overwhelming 15% of children and teenagers can develop an anxiety disorder before they reach adulthood.

These can include things like phobias, separation anxiety, OCD, PTS and panic attacks. Children will develop their own ways to deal with this however it may be that they avoid situations instead of learning how to deal with them and process their feelings. Rose Park Psycology can help with identifying, assessing and treating your child or teen.

Symptoms of Anxiety in children may include:
Avoiding situations, activities or certain people.
Seeking close physical proximity to caregivers and other trusted individuals.
Strong emotional reactions to certain situations (including fear, crying and anger).
Excessive reassurance seeking.
Behavioural problems, such as non-compliance and oppositionality.
School refusal resulting from anxiety and avoidance.
Somatic complaints
Ritualized behaviours

Sometimes families may even contribute by being over protective. This can unintentionally encourage children to avoid situations they feel anxious about.

Treatment of Anxiety Disorders

At Rose Park Psychology treatment is delivered in an age appropriate and engaging way, with principles of cognitive behaviour therapy taught to younger children through puppets and play. Parents are closely involved in treatment, to reinforce new behaviours and assist in generalising treatment gains to the child’s everyday environment.

Treatment typically involves:
Psycho-education – giving parents and children an understanding of the particular anxiety disorder, and what factors play a role in maintaining the disorder.
Relaxation training, when appropriate.
Cognitive restructuring and problem solving strategies.
Graduated exposure to anxiety producing situations.
Relapse prevention.

Rose Park Psychology also have group programs:
MindUP Curriculum (age 11-15 years)
Mindfullness Meditation Group (adolescents)
Mindfullness Meditation Group (adults)
What's the Buzz (age 5-10 years)
