This workshop is great for educators who have taken EASE or plan to take EASE or any educator who would like more strategies for supporting anxiety in the classroom.
In this workshop, participants will learn the theory, research, and hands-on strategies to support anxious students in schools. Educators will gain a better understanding of anxiety in terms of its function, different types, behaviours observed in the classroom, and its effects on learning. Attendees will also become familiar with the gold-standard approach to manage anxiety across settings and practice some universal techniques.
