SEPARATION ANXIETY & TRANSITIONS
"Life is a continuum of natural 'separations' and 'attachments' but usually we look at the second as positive and the first ones are not. Natural separations and attachments are the ones that happen at the right time and with the right help. It is important to understand that both realities are part of the process of development and that we need both in order to continue to grow."
Dr. Silvana Montanaro, The Value of Separation
For the young child, separating from the parents can often cause an enormous amount of anxiety. It is only through a foundation of trust ("I trust that Mom or Dad will come back to get me") that we begin to see the child find strength and acceptance in the goodbyes and transitions of life.
Together we will work on how to build trust with your child, how best to say goodbye, and will discover ways to make life's transitions go smoothly.
