With up to one in three children struggling with anxiety in this country, overwhelmed adults require a new approach as well as a practical and easy-to-implement toolkit of strategies that work. In the time of COVID19, and the subsequent societal changes, anxiety has become ever-present in students of all ages. It is probable that during a pandemic that heavily impacts everyday life, levels of anxiety in children and teens are even higher, and the possibility of subsequent trauma greater.
Through the use of case studies, humorous stories, and examples of everyday challenging situations, participants will learn easy to implement preventive tools, strategies, and interventions for reducing anxiety, increasing self-regulation, accurate thinking, and self-monitoring in students. Strategies for in-person and virtual platforms will be shared.
- Participants will be able to list common antecedents for students with anxiety
- Participants will be able to enumerate strategies to promote initiation, persistence, and help-seeking skills, in students with work avoidance
- Participants will be able to identify why common interventions may not always work for students with anxiety-related behavior
- Participants will be able to list strategies for reducing negative thinking toward writing
