Description

Do you work with students who suffer from Anxiety or are School Refusing? Do you want to explore ways to assist these students and strategies to support them in school?

Well come along to:

Supporting Students with Anxiety & School Refusal in the Primary Years

How to best support a student who is struggling can be challenging. A wide variety of factors can influence why a young person is having difficulties and sometimes it can be difficult for teachers to notice what is at the base of student’s concerns.

This interactive half-day workshop explores different ways of understanding why a student may be struggling in class or school refusing, as well as current approaches for effectively managing these situations. Practical classroom strategies and school wide approaches are presented and discussed.

Participants are encouraged to bring case studies for small group discussions.
