From Worrier to Warrior – Helping the Anxious Child to find their Inner Warrior within the School Environment - Monday, 24 April @ 7pm
DATE: Monday, 24 April 2023
TIME: 7pm to 8pm

While separation anxiety is a normal part of development, it becomes problematic when the symptoms; fear of being alone, fear of abandonment, somatic complaints, and worry about atrocities; hinders the child’s normal day to day living (Eisen & Schaefer; 2005.) In essence the child begins to fear the fear itself.

When a child’s fear causes her nervous system to be preoccupied with remaining safe and avoiding threat, she cannot attend to the here and now. Her survival brain is engaged and access to her learning brain is impeded. Out of fear of the consequences of separation from their attachment figure, children experiencing this may refuse to participate in play activities or even attend school (Choate et al, 2005).

Wipfler and Schore state that when a child feels connected and protected her limbic system can do a very important job; it can coordinate communication between all parts of the brain (2016). The learning brain re-engages.
