Understanding Anxiety in Children, a lecture Dr. James Dyson, will be given on February 24 at 7:30 pm in the High School library.
Chronic anxiety is becoming an increasing concern among parents and educators alike. This may not only have adverse effects on children’s quality of life and their educational achievement, but it may also have physiological effects, potentially both neurological and epigenetic.
In this talk, primarily intended for parents and friends of the school, Dr. Dyson will explore how aspects of the life and cultural context with which children find themselves confronted in our rapidly changing times can affect them. He will consider their impact on parenting and education and consider some ways in which these challenges may be contained and sometimes even turned to positive effect.
