Creating a MAP - PART 1

Sessions 1-3: Educational and foundational tools - These tools provide general information that applies to all children with anxiety and related problems, helping them become experts in how anxiety works, and preparing them to make changes in how they deal with their anxiety. For many children this material can be delivered in 1-2 sessions and they may not need all three sessions spent on Part 1. If this happens, simply move onto Part 2.

Objectives:  To help your child become an expert in understanding what happens in the body when we become anxious, the important role that anxiety plays, and that although anxiety can be helpful, too much anxiety is not. If your child gets the point right away, you do not need to persist in teaching the remaining tools if these seem unnecessary.
