How Do I Cope with the Anxiety I Feel About My Child's Safety?

As a child safety professional and coach, I often get asked how I can do the work I do and not have constant anxiety about all the awful things happening in the world. If I said I was unaffected I would be lying. I think often about my son's safety and about all the children I read reports about. In the past it gave me bouts of intense anxiety and sometimes depression. 

As a practitioner, I engage in reflective practices with a therapist to help me process and learn strategies to cope with the space this work takes up in my mind and heart. Through that work I've learned a few techniques that I find extremely helpful for parents struggling with anxiety about safety. 

In the recorded online training below, I discussed some of my favorite ways to manage anxiety surrounding child safety.
