Show Notes

Micheal Harris is a Licensed Psychologist and FASD Speaker. He also happens to be a foster parent to a now adult on the Spectrum.

During this pandemic we know not only individuals with FASD are anxious, but so are caregivers. In order to reduce anxiety, he tells us, “You need to define it and name it before you can move forward” and support your children.

In this podcast you will learn:

- What is anxiety?

- The six types of anxiety.

- A two step plan for getting off the anxiety loop.

- What the greatest protective factor is for combating caregiver anxiety.

In addition Michael and I talk about ideas to lower your anxiety so you can support your child’s learning at home, the importance of self care for yourself and how/where to find time for it.

I’m glad he brings the “woo woo” to you. Following his advice will help you find confidence in your parenting again.
