Back to School: Helping Kids Overcome School Anxiety and Build Resiliency

Presenter:  Sharon Saline, Psy.D.

Living in a world that’s increasingly unpredictable, today’s kids, especially alternative learners, are more anxious than ever before. Dr. Sharon Saline, veteran psychologist and author of What your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids for Success in School and Life, and The ADHD Solution Card Deck will discuss how anxiety works and what professionals and parents can do to help kids reduce their worries. Dr. Saline will also discuss how to help kids change their relationship to worry and avoid the pitfalls of negative thinking. Learn techniques for separating the person from the anxiety, talking to the worry itself, and creating effective responses to ‘what ifs’. Dr. Saline offers tools for teaching all types of learners how to realistically evaluate situations, tolerate uncertainty, and calm down.
