Anxiety and Stress for students and….

Anxious. We most often associate being anxious with negative connotations in the family of conversation around worried, stressed, uneasy, apprehensive and fearful.  In fact a quick check of the synonyms provides a list of 10 words and only one, eager, might be considered as a positive emotional response. We know that students, teachers, and parents can all experience the emotional spectrum associated with anxiety to some degree but for some of our students anxiety and stress “attacks” are debilitating and play a significant role in their efforts to get to school and learn.

Anxiety BC Youth has created a fairly comprehensive website with videos, links, and suggestions for students who are stressing out, experiencing panic attacks, and generally struggling to experience the positive aspects of being anxiously engaged. Students, teachers, parents, and counselors can find interesting stories and support strategies on the site.
