     Description
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. Virtual classroom and traditional classroom examples will be shared.
  
Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to...
1.    Describe the relationship between anxiety and working memory
2.    Describe why traditional breaks might not be effective for students with anxiety or trauma histories
3.    Identify why common interventions may not always work for students with anxiety-related behavior
4.    Enumerate strategies for reducing negative thinking toward writing
5.    Participants will be able to enumerate strategies to promote initiation, persistence, and help-seeking skills, in students with work avoidance
