Title: School Anxiety: An Interactive Presentation

Course Description: 
"Sometimes anxiety is easy to identify. Often, we see it when a child gets upset after being separated from a caregiver. We sometimes see anxiety when a child become excessively self-conscious making it difficult to participate with peers, or when a child may have excessive fears about things.   We may see anxiety at school if there is a test coming up and the child becomes nervous. Other times, it looks like something else, especially at school. We hear of frequent stomach aches and Monday morning misery when everything seems to hurt or go wrong. Many times, we mistake anxiety for something else-disruptive behaviors, a learning disorder, or even ADHD. There are many kinds of anxiety, and although school anxiety is not a disorder, it makes school difficult for a child experiencing the angst of anxiety to perform."
