Description

More than 13 percent of students – 1 in 8 – experience significant anxiety that limits their engagement in school and in relationships. Anxiety conditions – separation anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, and generalized anxiety – are the most prevalent mental issues, and they often go unnoticed. But the impact on the students is significant.

During this program, Mike Paget, M.Ed. gives teachers, counselors and other professionals the tools to support and teach this high-potential portion of the student population while avoiding an unmanageable classroom environment.
