Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will get to know themselves better and learn to self-regulate when anxiety arises.  After completing the classes, learners will know at least two breathing techniques and two or three other strategies that specifically work for them to better deal with anxiety.
This is a class that I have taught with groups in person.  I have experienced anxiety myself, worked through it with my own children, and supported students I have worked with through these challenges. I am a life coach and have taken many courses, please see below.  My background is unique in that I have experiences in the public school system, as a life coach, taken a variety of Professional Development courses on this subject and am working through my Social Work degree.  
Courses I have taken:
Counselling Skills I & II, Extended Education, University of Manitoba 
Connecting to Youth: Aulneau Renewal Centre (Angela Taylor)
Working with Stuck Kids: Crisis and Trauma Resource Institute - Canada CTRI (Dr. Gordon Neufeld) 
Mental Health First Aid: Mental Health Commission of Canada through MTS
Crucial Conversations: Manitoba Teachers Society (MTS)
The Eight Pillars of Executive Control (Dr. Adam J. Cox)
Resilient Kids - What makes a kid resilient and how can we create resilient kids? (Michael Unger)
Anxious Kids, Anxious Families: Strategies that Work for School and Home (Reid Wilson, Ph.D. and Lynn Lyons, MSW)
Mindfulness Training (Vikki Enns)
Neuro-Linguistic Programming
In each class, the learner will be given a technique to work with k to shift the anxiety and/or negative self-talk.  This will hopefully empower them to better self-regulate. 
GoogleDocs will be used for the handouts at the beginning of each class. Powerpoint will be displayed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
By the end of the process, the learner will know if the techniques learned are supportive to better self-regulate the anxiety they have experienced. 
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents may want to check-in with their child weekly to see if they are using the techniques given and how they are progressing
