“The Anxiety Dance”: A Parents’ Guide with Dr. Chris McCurry
- With layman’s terms and a bit of irreverent humor, Dr. McCurry covers the growing and serious problem of anxiety in children. He explains the origins of child anxiety in biological factors (temperament, brain development) and early experiences, particularly social experiences.
- He will discuss the ways a child’s fearful and anxious behaviors function to communicate distress and compel the parent to come to the child’s rescue.
- Dr. McCurry will give us strategies for making this process or “dance” work better: clearer communication, mutual respect, better problem solving, and increased tolerance for distress.
Discussion and Question/Answer period will follow.
Chris McCurry, Ph.D., is a clinical child psychologist in private practice at Associates in Behavior and Child Development, Inc., P.S. in Seattle. He is a clinical instructor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington. Dr. McCurry specializes in the assessment and treatment of children who are experiencing behavioral and emotional problems including anxiety disorders, attention disorders, underachievement in school, and parent-child conflicts. He is the author of Parenting Your Anxious Child with Mindfulness and Acceptance published in 2009 by New Harbinger.
