Childhood anxiety – helping parents help their children
19 October, 6:00 pm
Talk | The Mind, Health & Medicine
Problems with anxiety are common, with roots often in childhood, however support for children and their families is all too rare. In this talk, University of Oxford Professor, Cathy Creswell, explores a range of evidence-based ways for parents to help their children overcome problems with anxiety. Individuals can achieve great results, and you can help researchers find new ways to make sure everyone gets support when they first need it. This event is part of the art of the Health research and You series of talks from the National Institute for Health Research.
Cathy Creswell is Professor of Developmental Clinical Psychology at the University of Oxford with particular interest in mental health in children and young people. She is an Honorary Consultant Psychologist and leads the The Oxford Psychological Interventions for Children and adolescents (TOPIC) research group.
