In primary care, at times, a family approach is required rather than just the individual approach

I sometimes see parents who present for help with their children’s stress response of “fight or flight”. 

When we dig deeper, often the whole family is in the “fight or flight” response from stress, fear and anxiety.

“Flight or flight”, fear and anxiety can be very contagious unfortunately.  

A lot of time in primary care, it’s not just about the kids is it?

It’s often about the whole family as a unit, and they may require a family approach rather than just the individual approach.
