Putting Concepts into Practice for Students with Anxiety: Combining Effective Plans with Real-Time Classroom Strategies
with Lynn Lyons, LICSW
Those who work in schools are being asked to do more and more to support the emotional well-being and mental health needs of their students. During this period of remote learning and daily uncertainty, the challenges are even more multi-faceted, and the need for skill-based supports more important than ever.
This intensive training will focus on HOW to interrupt anxiety’s cognitive patterns with simple, process-based approaches. Participants will be given strategies and language for identifying and managing normal levels of worry and anxiety as students learn, as well as concrete information about what to do with children who are in the throes of anxiety. In addition, participants will learn how anxiety’s quest for certainty and comfort impacts plans and goals for students, and thus how to create plans that are skill-based instead of avoidance-based.
