Anxiety in the classroom
This course will help you build an understanding of how anxiety affects children and young people and develop strategies to help them manage it.
What is anxiety and how does it affect learning and development? How do we recognise it in children and young people and what can we do to overcome it?
Anxiety is the single most common mental health problem in children and adolescents and it can have a huge impact to the quality of life of the child and the child's family. This can manifest itself in terms of difficulties with attendance at school, ability to concentrate and perform in the classroom or in exams, in with social emotional well-being & behaviour.
