Scared of the Dark – Helping kids manage the monsters under the bed

Saturday, February 2
The Village Closet
2 Main Street, Cummington, MA

Join us Saturday, February 2nd from 11:30am—1:00pm for a free workshop with child psychologist Dr. Edward Plimpton, a child clinical psychologist specializing the treatment of OCD and other anxiety disorders in children.

– From ghosts in the closet to lockdown drills, learn practical skills to help with your child’s fears.
– How to talk to kids about upsetting current events or violence on the news.
– How to express your own fears and anxieties without frightening your children.

Bring questions about your own children’s specific anxieties
Free childcare will be provided in a separate room. (Please RSVP to the Facebook event and mention that you will use the childcare, so we can make sure to have enough care providers).

This workshop is part of It Takes a Village’s Parent Support and Education Program, sponsored by United Way Hampshire County, the AKC Fund, and Dr Michael Fabrizio of Pittsfield.
