  • Missed TAEG?  On June 6th, Dr. Katharina Manassis, child psychiatrist and author of research on anxiety and anaphylaxis in children presented.  In this presentation about anxiety in the context of anaphylaxis in children & youth, Dr. Manassis discussed:
    • 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
