Webinar: Anxiety in the classroom: Managing anxiety during COVID part 2

The COVID-19 pandemic is eliciting significant psychosocial concerns for youth and adults alike, especially anxiety. Educators have unique opportunities to engage with youth during this time, despite the fact that most schools are operating remotely. Identifying and implementing strategies for all (educators and youth) to cope with anxiety during this time is important. In this webinar, we will discuss how to identify anxiety, distinguish typical and problematic anxiety, and describe/utilize coping strategies for anxiety, and promote resilience in educational settings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Webinar Objectives:
1) Distinguish typical vs. problematic anxiety within educational settings (both in-person and remote formats) during a global pandemic
2) Apply evidence-based strategies for anxiety to these situations as an educator
3) Learn to promote use of evidence-based strategies for anxiety for youth within an educational setting
4) Understand how implementation of effective anxiety coping strategies can promote resilience
