COVID-19 has created a lot of new stress for children and families. Schreiber’s Behavioral Health therapists wanted to provide some resources to help you navigate the daily challenges. We’re launching this series of blog posts on the topic of anxiety. We will publish two a week for the next three weeks. Today, the first post is a video called What is Worry.
Here’s the list of all the posts:
Post 1: What is Worry
Post 2: How the Autonomic Nervous System works
Post 3: How worry affects our body
Post 4: A little spot of anxiety
Post 5: How worry affects our thinking
Post 6: Other calming strategies
The following are links to social stories that could help children better understand and worry less about COVID-19.
- COVID King
- My Name is Coronavirus
- Feeling Anxious and Worried
- Why We Stay Home
- Talking With Children about Coronavirus (CDC)
- You can also Google ‘Coronavirus story for kids’ or ‘coronavirus social story for kids’ for mores stories and information.
