This video course welcomes you and your family into a session with me. I give you and your kids concrete things to do to interrupt worry patterns so that you can manage worry in a different way.
There are 6 video and 9 bonus Q&A videos in this course where I share the information I give to my own clients in my therapy practice.
As a bonus, I explain to children (ages six and older) what anxiety is doing in their bodies and brains.
Parents can learn the ways to transform a family’s worry cycle.
Active Strategies to Move Teens Forward
A Six Hour Online Training
Both anxiety and depression are on the rise in teens, and anxiety is currently the top reason why a parent brings a child to a mental health professional. Because an untreated anxiety disorder is one of the top predictors of developing depression as an adolescent or young adult, the need for prevention and more effective treatment of anxiety has become a critical focus of those that work with children and teens in many settings.
This is an intermediate to advanced level training appropriate for all who work (and live) with teens: licensed mental health counselors, psychologists, social workers, school counselors, school nurses, educators, parents, caregivers, foster parents, and grandparents.

Helping Children With Anxiety: Lynn Lyons Talks to Kids
a 30 minute video for children
Anxiety in children is all too common and, when left untreated, is one of the strongest predictors of anxiety and depression later in life. Childhood fears and worries are normal, but excessive worrying and the cycle of behaviors that follow adversely influence a child’s learning, social development, and family life. In this half hour video, I speak directly to children and their parents, helping them understand what worry does to their bodies and mind and then how to respond to worry in a different way.

Playing with Anxiety:
Casey’s Guide for Teens and Kids
Anxiety has the power to stop kids in their tracks, preventing them from exploring and growing into independent teens and young adults.
Casey, the fourteen year old narrator of Playing with Anxiety, knows all too well how worry can interrupt fun, ruin school, and take control of a family.
In this companion book to Reid Wilson and Lynn Lyons’ parenting book, Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents: 7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous & Independent Children (HCI Books, 2013), Casey shares her own experiences and those of her friends to teach kids and teens the strategies to handle the normal worries of growing as well as the more powerful tricks of anxiety.
With pluck and humor, Casey tells stories, offers exercises, and describes her “solving the puzzle” approach that kids and their parents can use to address all types of worries and fears.
Using Hypnosis with Children:
Creating and Delivering Effective Interventions
From the initial interview to creating the best metaphors, Using Hypnosis with Children is a practical, step-by-step guide that shows health care providers (including therapists, nurses, pediatricians, dentists, and educators) how to create and deliver hypnotic interventions that are customized and effective into their pediatric clinical work, with utilization and flexibility as key components to an overall treatment approach.
Using case examples of language for all age groups, readers learn first how to identify the salient targets or themes, deliver a session that hits these targets with precision, and then connect the session to the child’s everyday experience.
More broadly, readers learn to use hypnosis as a way to help create new neural pathways, teach self-regulation, introduce a more internal locus of control, and develop positive interpersonal experiences.
Chapters focus on the most common issues that children face, including anxiety, depression, medical procedures/pain, and sleep.
