Well Minds Work Workshop in Focus – Lady Gowrie

Over the past month Well Minds Work has been completing a series of workshops across Tasmania for Lady Gowrie. These were focused on managing anxiety in children from birth to 12 years old. We were delighted with the knowledge, participation, and enthusiasm by childhood educators and inclusion professionals attending the sessions. Some of the key takeaways for participants were learning what anxiety looks like and how to manage it, as well as where and when to get more support. The UTAS University Psychology Clinic provides low cost therapy and assessment services for children and their families. You can learn more about these services here: https://www.utas.edu.au/health/community-programs/university-psychology-clinic ??‍?‍?‍?
