Managing Anxiety at School and Home
An Active Approach to Interrupt the Worry Cycle
6-Week Online Training for Professionals and Parents
Tuesday February 14, 2017 –Tuesday March 21, 2017
Two-hour sessions for six weeks, with the opportunity to submit questions week-by-week and watch each broadcast when convenient for your learning.
When children and teens are in the grips of worry and anxiety, adults often feel stuck as well. Educators, therapists and parents routinely tell me how overwhelmed they feel by the frequency and intensity of anxiety in the children they care about. And they want to know what to do.
This six part series will answer the questions I hear most often, including:
- How do we get anxious students into school?
- What do we do when an anxious child is falling apart in school?
- What can adults do to both prevent anxiety from becoming so powerful and help children manage it when it does show up?
- Why are the strategies frequently taught to kids–like breathing, relaxation, and other common CBT techniques—not working?
- How does “frontloading” with anxious kids make interventions more effective?
- How can we create more effective accommodations and 504 plans?
- What is the connection between anxiety and depression?
Certificates for 12 CEU’s are provided by R Cassidy Seminars after the completion of a quiz (75% score required). An optional link to register for the CEU program will be provided by email to all registrants.
