PARENT WORKSHOP: Handling Transitioning & Separation Anxiety for Families with Infants, Toddlers & Preschoolers with Lindsay Nejmeh, LMHC

Join Lindsay Nejmeh, LMHC as she discusses early childhood transitions and separation anxiety in infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Learn how you can ease your child’s anxiety and help them through the transition process. Separation Anxiety is a normal part of the developmental process for children and can present itself often. For example, during drop off at daycare or school, different times of the day in school (transitioning from one activity to the next), as children graduate into an older class and transition to a different classroom, or when there is a new caregiver/teacher, etc.

The workshop will cover:
* What separation anxiety is and how your child feels/thinks during each stage of development from infancy to the preschool years.
* Understanding parental feelings while watching your child grow and develop independence.
* Understanding childhood exploration
* Ways to help ease transitions and separation anxiety.

Lindsay believes that the life of an infant, toddler, or preschooler, is an exciting time for both parents and children. However, there are moments when this excitement is interrupted by challenges that make this stage both rewarding and stressful. Her focus is supporting families grow together, build communication, and enhance development. Through weekly sessions, families work with Lindsay to strengthen relationships and navigate issues. During session, families will address a variety of problems including: tantrums, hitting/biting/kicking, lack of concentration, “sharing” difficulties, separation anxiety, new siblings, feeding issues, potty training, sleeping problems, and more. Lindsay has extensive knowledge in this specialized field, and uses the most cutting edge techniques. Similarly, Lindsay has a friendly and warm demeanor and takes a supportive stance. She realizes that every family is different and goes through their own unique set of ups and downs.
