Dr Jodi Richardson: Supporting Anxious Students And Their Parents

Session Info:

Student anxiety and the accompanying parenting involvement is an ever-increasing challenge for schools, stretching educators professionally and personally. Add to this the practical challenge experienced by most educators as they ‘counsel’ anxious students (and their parents) while feeling inadequately trained to do so.

In this interactive presentation Jodi empowers teachers and educational leaders with an understanding of what happens in an anxious brain, strategies for counselling anxious students, practical skills to calm anxious brains and bodies, advice for working with parents of anxious kids and teens and much more.

Topics Covered:

  • Understand and recognise anxiety
  • Know how to respond to and redirect a highly anxious child
  • Expanding your toolbox of practical classroom anxiety management strategies
  • Manage the contagious nature of anxiety
  • Talk to parents of anxious students and confidently direct them to professional help
