Everyone experiences some anxiety during times of stress, but it's a cause for concern when nervousness, fear, and anxiousness become unhealthy or even debilitating. This concern is even more acute for adolescents. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates nearly 1 in 3 teens ages 13-18 suffer from anxiety disorders.
During this workshop, participants explore the basics of anxiety and panic attacks. You will learn about the pathophysiological response that is happening when your student is experiencing a panic attack, and how to help your student in the moments of an attack. Learn basic coping strategies to help your students work through test-related panic so they achieve better success. Find strategies to help the entire classroom engage in helpful well-being behaviors.
As a result of this class, participants will...
- Understand the science, signs, and symptoms of anxiety, empowering you to help your students succeed
- Learn basic coping strategies to help your students work through panic associated with tests to achieve better success
- Have ways to introduce well-being behaviors in every classroom to promote mental health for all students
