About the Event
What happens when schools, parents and students rely on avoidance rather than skill-building? Anxiety gets stronger. Lynn lays out the necessary components of skill-based plans that do the opposite of what worry demands, focusing on how to equip kids, parents and schools with strategies that move them out of the worry cycle.
Lynn describes how to support collaboration between parents and school staff, including education for classroom teachers on how anxiety shows up and hijacks learning.
Light refreshments (sandwiches, fruit, drinks) will be provided outside the library before the PD session begins.
