F20-Anxiety in Elementary School Children

Sold Out

CANCELED! Anxiety in Elementary School Children Michael Dodd, Ph.D   Anxiety or "worry" is normal in Elementary School children, and often adaptive too -- but not always --  so how do you know?   Michael Dodd, Child and Family Psychologist, will summarize normal development milestones for children from preschool through the elementary school years. During these years, children gradually leave behind the world of "make pretend" abilities and adopt real world skills like math facts, reading/writing journals, homework, and quizzes. The social landscape is changing too for children during these years. Imaginary friends are gradually being replaced by the quest for real life "buddies/bff's" who will reciprocate playdates, and friends made through competitive activites. You will learn how worry is adaptive during these years, i.e. how it performs a signal function, enabling kids to anticipate, prepare for, and prevent potential harm; and how anxiety can get out of whack, i.e. how worry can become detached from the harm it is intended to signal, and become free floating enabling drift into anxiety disorders. Common anxiety disorders in children will be discussed including separation anxiety, generalized anxiety, common phobias, panic attacks, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. You will also learn what treatment for anxiety usually looks like in elementary school children, including the need to approach vs. avoid worries, and how to do so incrementally with success. The presenter will offer clinical anecdotes and invite questions from the audience to enable group discussion. Limited to 20.   Date: Monday, November 2    Time: 7:30-9:30PM    Fee: $29

F20-Stop the Mulch-scaping and Start Landscaping

ONLINE! Stop Mulch-Scaping and Start Landscaping!  Joanne Neale At some unknown point in time, mulch-- black, orange, brown, etc.-- became a part of the landscape, but wouldn't you rather have plants? Anywhere you can put mulch, you can dig a hole and put in a groundcover plant. Groundcover plants = living mulches. Think of the money, time and work you'll save on mulching every spring. And groundcovers are the go-to plant for low-maintenance gardens. Besides eliminating the need for mulch, they keep weeds from crowding in; they provide an extra layer of color and flowers; and they help maintain soil moisture, which means less watering. What's not to like about that? Come learn what to do before you start replacing your boring old mulch with fabulous new groundcovers and find out which groundcovers are right for your garden. Note: If you are not an experienced gardener, it would be helpful to first attend the Low Maintenance Gardening Workshop before signing up for this class. Limited to 20.   Date: Thursday, January 14                                                                        Time: 7:00-8:00PM Fee: $19
