Toronto Anaphylaxis Education Group

Welcome to the TAEG website.  The Toronto Anaphylaxis Education Group (TAEG) is a local learning and support group for individuals and parents of children living with life threatening allergies. For more details on our meeting program for 2016/17 see our Meetings, Membership and Location section.

  • Our next TAEG meeting is Tuesday June 6 at 7-9pm  – Click here to register
  • Join us for an evening with Dr. Katharina Manassis, child psychiatrist and author of research on anxiety and anaphylaxis in children.  In this presentation about anxiety in the context of anaphylaxis in children & youth, Dr. Manassis will discuss:
    • Distinguishing between anxiety reactions and realistic fear

    • Physical, mental, and behavioral signs of anxiety and how to address these

    • The role of parents’ anxiety, and managing this

    • Differences between helpful strategies for adolescents versus younger children

  • Then, Dr. Manassis will lead the group to problem-solve regarding participants’ experiences with their own children!
