Following the success of the first International School of Luxembourg seminar on Anxiety in Young People, a new session has been planned which will feature an exclusive film showing and a panel discussion of experts.
The film is entitled Angst and is presented as "a 56-minute film and virtual reality experience that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it." The film's maker seeks to "have a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety".
The film features candid interviews with children and young adults who suffer or have suffered from anxiety, and who tell the audience what they've learned about it.
Health professionals panel
The panel of well-known health professionals will answer questions from the audience and share their knowledge on how to help young people cope with anxiety.
The health professionals on the panel will include psychotherapist Dr Fari Khabirpour, counsellor/psychotherapist Jan Kossack, psychologist Tina Klippel, Kirchberg hospital youth psychiatrist Dr Christopher Goepel, and psychologist Juliette Moussa. Following the panel there will be a Q&A session.
Children over 10
The event is open to anyone in Luxembourg. Parents can bring their children only if they're 10 or over "so that learning can take place together."
Refreshments will be available, with the ISL Business Club's students selling popcorn and drinks at the door prior to the film. Coffee, tea and water will be available during the seminar.
The organisers have pointed out that since seats are limited, booking as soon as possible is essential.
