Reducing Anxiety in the Classroom

LDAY Centre for Learning and Autism Yukon present behaviour specialist Jessica Minihan for a full day workshop with educators.

With up to one in four children struggling with anxiety in this country, overwhelmed adults are in need of a new approach as well as an effective and easy-to-implement toolkit of strategies that work.

Through the use of case studies, humorous stories, and examples of common challenging situations, participants will learn easy to implement preventive tools, strategies, and interventions for reducing anxiety, increasing self-regulation, accurate thinking, and self-monitoring.
