Supporting Children Experiencing Anxiety

Author: ConnectAbility

1 ECE Hour

Learning Continuum: Enhanced

Children, as well as adults, experience anxiety. In fact, anxiety in children should be expected at specific times during development and is usually regarded as normal. For example, a child sometimes experiences higher levels of anxiety the first time she attends school or child care. Children experiencing excessive anxiety may not yet have the ability to vocalize their feelings or possess the necessary coping skills to manage. As a result, dealing with their fears and anxiety may be even more difficult.

Compassion Fatigue refers to the profound emotional and physical exhaustion that helping professionals and caregivers can develop over the course of their career. It is a gradual erosion of all the things that keep us connected to others: our empathy, our hope,  and of course our compassion - not only for others but also for ourselves. Compassion fatigue has also been described as the “cost of caring” for others in emotional pain.
