Fear. Worry. Anger. Irritability. Sleeplessness. Fatigue. Headaches. Physical illness.

Childhood and adolescent anxiety can present itself in many ways. As ministry leaders we are called to come alongside and support parents as they work toward health and wholeness for their child or teen. In this
three-session cohort with certified counselor and psychotherapist Dr. Chinwe Williams, we discuss and define anxiety. We look at the causes and the symptoms. We talk about practical ways we can resource parents and educate volunteers so that every child who sees the world through the lens of anxiety has a village of Christ followers ready and willing to love and support them.
