Dr. Clelland Shares Advice for Helping Children with Anxiety

In the Media | 03.09.19

Debbie Clelland, Ph.D., gave advice on how to help children cope with anxiety in a story in The Gisborne Herald, a New Zealand newspaper. Dr. Clelland, Ph.D., is a core faculty member for the M.A. in Counselling Psychology and Master of Counselling Psychology programs in Vancouver.

Dr. Clelland explained how the rise in childhood anxiety could be because children are becoming “more aware of tragedies and sad things happening in the world, and the harm being done to the planet.”

She recommends that parents “be curious and explore what is making your child anxious, then learn how to deal with the stress and give them tools to deal with those emotions.”
