Be the Calm in the Storm

A program for any educator seeking strategies to support or manage anxious students, colleagues, or parents.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented rise in anxiety which has and will continue to test the limits and resources of educators and schools. This presentation will provide recent research findings on the psychological and educational impact of living, learning, and teaching in a COVID-19 world. Further, we will provide a toolkit of strategies that teachers can use to support their students.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the psychological and educational impact of COVID-19
  • Recognize how anxiety presents in a school setting (e.g. behavioral, physical, cognitive, emotional symptoms)
  • Provide strategies to support teachers in their work with their anxious students: procrastinators, worriers, ruminators, black and white thinkers, perfectionists
