Attendee 1 Information
Anxiety represents our body’s natural alarm system, signalling the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress. While every person experiences anxiety, it is estimated that over a quarter of the population will experience anxiety at levels that cause distress in their lives. This workshop will explore when anxiety is adaptive and in order, compared to when it becomes disordered. Participants will learn practical and accessible strategies which can be applied to all ages, and help address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social aspects of anxiety.

In-person events follow local guidelines for gathering. This workshop will transition to a virtual event should COVID restrictions limit in-person gatherings. Please call CTRI before booking flight/hotel room.
This workshop is being run in partnership with the Northern Institute of Social Justice and Yukon University.
