Children, Teens, and Parents
Most children and teens are experiencing stress levels higher than are considered healthy. School is the top source of stress for children, and for teens, it’s the pressure of getting into a good college or finding a job after graduation.
For many young people, this stress manifests itself as emotional and physical symptoms. More than a quarter of teens report feeling overwhelmed, having negative thoughts, or changes in sleeping habits. More than a third report feeling tired, nervous or anxious, or experiencing irritability and anger.
The bad news: nearly a 1 in 3 teens also said they weren’t sure if they were doing enough to manage their stress.
The good news: we can help you help your child learn to keep stress in check.
At the East Bay Center for Anxiety Relief, we have trained clinicians who work with children ages 3 and older. Our unique assessment process allows us to understand your child or teen, and determine if they are motivated to create change in their life. If your child is interested and wants to manage their stress, habits and relationships better, we work with them individually — and include parent or family sessions as needed. Alternatively, if your child isn’t interested in working with us, we offer parenting sessions that can help you help them.
