In Canada, 1 in 8 children suffers from anxiety, while only 20% of these children will get the help they need. Anxiety manifests in many ways including: panic attacks, separation anxiety, stomach aches, headaches, tantrums, obsessions/compulsions, avoidance of activities, racing thoughts, troubles with sleep, rigid behaviours, aggression etc. In this session educators will learn about the psychological and physiological roots of anxiety, why it is on the rise in children and teens, what educators can do to better help students regulate their anxiety in the classroom while fostering resiliency, and key resources educators can provide to families. This workshop, in its full format, has been presented globally in 4 different countries and has sold out across Canada. It has been condensed as a keynote style session for a variety of conferences and fundraisers in Alberta.
