Speaker: David Gotthelf, Ph.D., NCSP
Overview: Anxiety has become a major concern for what seems to be the majority of students ranging from the elementary level through college and beyond. School and the developmental issues students must manage have always been demanding. The use of computers and social media have exacerbated these demands. Perhaps more than any area other than executive functioning—the two areas go hand-in-hand—anxiety is the most common reason for referral for behavioral services. Understanding and use of effective interventions for anxiety, as well as for stress and worry management, are important skills for not only behavioral specialists but for all educators, administrators, and paraprofessionals.
