Calming Today's Anxious Kids with Maggie Dent, Dr Kaylene Henderson & Allison Davies. A one-day conference on understanding and supporting anxiety for anyone who lives or works with children birth-12.

After a four-city tour in 2019, we're bringing this fantastic conference to Hobart and Wollongong in March 2020. Join three well-respected, leading Australian experts for a clear & practical exploration of the fastest-growing health concern in childhood—anxiety.

Featuring Maggie Dent, Dr Kaylene Henderson and Allison Davies. Hosted by Maggie Dent. Supported by Parent TV.

Early bird tix and payment plan available until 18th December (for Tassie) and 18th January (for Wollongong).

With the fast pace of modern life and the hidden pressures on our children, they need our guidance more than ever to better manage fear, worry and anxiety. One of Australia's most popular parenting authors and a passionate advocate for mindfulness, Maggie Dent has been writing about calming children since 2003 (and that was before our kids even had iPads!).

In this very special conference, Maggie is joined by two of her favourite experts—Dr Kaylene Henderson and Allison Davies—to share their insights into anxiety in childhood and what we can do about it. Together, they will not only explore why anxiety and associated behaviours occur, they will reveal tangible, simple strategies to improve our children's ability to regulate themselves.

Topics include:
- What unhealthy anxiety looks like
- When to get help
- Teaching your child strategies for managing anxiety
- Self-regulation
- Understanding our stress-response system
- How to develop a calm brain
- What sensory processing disorder is like
- Anxiety for those with ASD
- How music can help
- How you can make your home or workplace calmer

Our speakers are not just authorities in their field—they are parents and/or grandparents who have a firm grasp on how life is for children today.

Doors open at 8am for an 8:45am start. Tickets are general admission so you may sit wherever you like. While babes in arms are welcome at Maggie's events, this event is not suitable for older children. Please see the event webpage for full details.
