Maximizing learning potential by building student confidence, and reducing risks, for students with anxiety
Presented by: Jules Haddock
Event Information: 6 PD Hours
Many young adolescents have limited coping skills. Combine this with a lack of understanding around the personal presentation of mental illness, where 50% of all mental illnesses start before the age of 18, this psychological distress, can see the presentation of at risk behaviours, being adopted in the lives of adolescent leaners.
The need to cope with anxiety, for many young people, sees the presentation of behaviours that put young people at risk of NSSI, Non Suicidal Self Injurious behaviours. This can also then lead to thoughts about suicide, and at its worse, suicidal behaviours.
This session will:
Frame the background of mental illness experiences for young learners, and the correlation to at risk behaviours within the context of limited coping skills.
Increase your understanding and confidence in recognising at risk behaviours.
Provide you with action based conversations and support guidelines in assisting learners at risk.
Offer referral pathways for high risk leaners.
