Dr. Meredith Elkins Shares Insight Into “Healthy” Anxiety

All children and adolescents have, and experience, anxiety—it’s natural for all of us to have some anxiety. But when kids have a lot of anxiety, or don’t know ways to manage it, it can impact their education, their relationships, and their development.

It can be tough for children to explain how anxiety is making them feel. Expression of anxiousness in kids and teens may be mistaken for a mood disorder. So how can we tell what’s healthy anxiety, when they need to talk to someone, or if it’s something more than anxiety? How can we help loved ones talk about—and manage—their anxiety?

In this previously recorded session, R. Meredith Elkins, PhD, discusses healthy and unhealthy levels of anxiety in kids, shares similarities and differences between anxiety disorders and mood disorders, and answers audience questions about how, by helping our children with their anxiety, we can also help ourselves.
