Description

These sessions are specifically for educators that have completed the online EASE training AND are currently directly teaching EASE lessons in their classroom. If you would like to attend and haven’t yet completed the training, please complete the training independently at https://healthymindsbc.gov.bc.ca/ease-online/ and attend the next session in May.

In each session Dr. Juliana will focus on some unique content. You may attend one, two or three sessions. 

If you have questions about EASE implementation, how or when to use certain strategies, or troubleshooting particular lessons this is the forum where DrJuliana Negreiros, one of the key contributors to the EASE content, can respond. She can also address how to create supportive spaces in the classroom for students who have problematic anxiety. Please keep in mind that EASE is about addressing everyday anxiety in the classroom. If you have students that have a diagnosis and/or a care team please work with the school counsellor, school-based team and care team involved.
