The Marin County Office of Education in partnership with IndieFlix is presenting two screenings of the film Angst.
Thursday, March 29 at the Marin County Office of Education - 6:00 pm (English and Spanish)
In 55 minutes, Angst leads the conversation that every family and educator needs to have. It features anxiety experts, teens and adults sharing stories of anxiety, including students from Marin County. The film answers many questions including:
· What is the difference between being anxious and having an anxiety disorder?
· What causes anxiety?
· What can we do to feel better?
Viewers of the film will leave feeling lighter and with a greater understanding about what we can do to recognize and manage anxiety. Following the screening will be a discussion moderated by skilled mental health professionals from our community and the filmmaker, Karin Gornick, along with teens from the film.
The Sibling LAB:
Transforming Rivalry into Revelry
What can I do to promote a strong bond between my kids? Their fighting creates so much tension and upset at home. What can I do to help their relationship thrive? How can I help them build a safe connection? What is my role when they are fighting? Why are they constantly AT each other?
Polly will answer these questions in the Sibling LAB and show you a productive road to cultivating a peaceful home.
