Anxiety is now the #1 most diagnosed mental health disorder in the USA, and the leading reason why college students seek professional help. Over 40 million people in this country suffer from anxiety, and 25% of all adolescents ages 13 to 18 have an anxiety disorder. Severe and uncontrolled anxiety is similar to a learning disability, in that an elementary or secondary school student simply cannot learn to their fullest potential when anxiety is dominating. But, luckily, anxiety is a highly treatable disorder.  

 

This workshop provides the language and direction adults need to assist an anxious youth. Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of: 

  • The signs, symptoms, and different types of anxiety

  • The differences between stress and anxiety

  • The impact of social media on anxiety

  • How parents unknowingly add to their child’s anxiety

  • Specific techniques to support anxious youth
