Presented by: Jules Haddock
Event Information: 6 PD Hours
Did you know in your class room this year, that 1 out of 4 of your learners will experience a mental illness, with the majority being an anxiety disorder? Most learners won’t know it, parents won’t know it, and perhaps teachers either. You owe it to your learner to know “it”, and even more, how to support young people experiencing a mental illness.
Sounds a bit daunting, but this workshop will take you on a pathway of understanding that we can creatively converse with young people about mental wellbeing, once we know what we are talking about.
Young people need to learn about anxiety to manage it. It’s our responsibility to teach ourselves, and it’s our responsibility to teach those we support, as education in recovery is essential.
This session will explore creative conversations that:
• Will build on your understanding of anxiety disorders and the facts and prevalence in young people’s lives.
• Research anxiety disorders as treatable illnesses.
• Learn about the different layers of stress and the vulnerabilities to anxiety.
• Understand how our minds can dictate catastrophic and unrealistic outcomes, yet we can do something about this.
• Understand the Recovery Model and assist in addressing all aspects of a young person’s learning journey creatively.
