What is Worry?
In school-aged children, the loudest often garner the most attention. Symptoms like anger are obvious, while internalized symptoms such worry and depression go unnoticed. This worksheet is intended to help the quiet worriers learn to understand and talk about their challenges.
Use this worksheet to educate children and young adolescents about worry, help them become more aware of their own worries, and learn about physical symptoms of worry. Finally, the worksheet opens a conversation about healthy strategies to manage worry.
