Stress and anxiety are a fact of life for children — and a source of concern for the parents who love them. Despite well-meaning intentions, not all parents feel adept at identifying the signs of stress or handling their child's anxiety.
Chris McCurry, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist in private practice at Associates in Behavior and Child Development, Inc., P.S. in Seattle who specializes in childhood anxiety. He sat down with ParentMap to talk about childhood stress and help outline for parents a new way of thinking about their child’s anxiety and distress — one based on intention and attention. Key takeaways for viewers include strategies for responding to distress and tools for promoting resilience.
