With up to one in three children struggling with anxiety in this country, overwhelmed adults are in need of a new approach as well as an effective and easy-to-implement toolkit of strategies. Understanding the role anxiety plays in a student’s behavior is crucial and using preventive strategies are key to successful intervention. In addition to preventive strategies, it is crucial to teach coping skills, self-monitoring, and alternative responses.
Through the use of case studies, humorous stories, and examples of common challenging situations, participants will learn easy-to-implement preventive strategies for reducing anxiety, increasing self-regulation, accurate thinking, and self-monitoring in students.
Join us for an extended workshop led by Jessica Minahan, Co-Author of The Behavior Code: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching the Most Challenging Students, focusing on proven practices to help teachers, counselors, leaders, and parents identify the messages underlying challenging student behaviors and respond in supportive ways. This event will be a review of her keynote Summit session, but with time to go even deeper into the content.
