Worry University: Anxiety, Its Causes & How to Reduce at School/Home 1:1
Melissa Snyder, M.Ed., LPCC
In this one-time class, we'll learn about what worry/anxiety is, what makes anxiety worse, and what we can do to reduce and eliminate moderate to mild anxiety, both at home and at school.
This class is available for 1:1, and can be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time. This class is ideal for learners who have an interest in learning what anxiety is, what can make it worse and what can make it better. Strategies are included that can be used at home and at school. There are 10 other variations of this class that can also be scheduled. See below for details. This is a lots of information type class, with little participation asked for, so learners can feel more...
Learning Goals: 1. Students will learn how to define worry/anxiety in terms of feelings and physiological reaction. 2. Students will learn at least four behaviors that increase worry/anxiety. 3. Student will learn at least four strategies to reduce or eliminate moderate to mild worry/anxiety, including strategies that can be used while at school
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, with M.Ed. in Community counseling and a B.A. in Sociology. I have taught Anxiety Awareness/Reduction, to children of all ages, in brick and mortar classrooms, and in group counseling settings.
Assessments OfferedInformal assessment will take place throughout the lesson by asking students if they have questions. If students seem very talkative/engaged, we'll share the ways in which they can apply the strategies after the class. Due to the nature of this class, great care will be taken to support students in engaging to the level they feel comfortable with. No one will be put on the spot or "forced" to answer.
1 file available upon enrollmentThere is a class outline provided that students can download and use to take notes or just follow along. There will also be handouts posted that students can print out to follow along with strategies taught at the end of the class. The handouts will be shown on "Share Screen" in class if you're unable to print them out.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This is a fact-based course. I don't anticipate sensitive topics being discussed. In the event a student would bring up a personal anxiety related issue, I will recognize the feeling/comment (i.e. "That can be really difficult") and respond, "That's important information to share with a trusted adult in a private/one-on-one setting. For now, let's talk about...". This has been a successful strategy in previous fact-based courses to address any sensitive topics that may come up. I don't believe parental guidance is required. However, parents know best if their child will more comfortable with them by their side. The fact-based content of this course doesn't require a parent, but the nature/personality of the specific learner may.
