Event Description

Children with anxiety disorders are at risk for poor performance, diminished learning, and social/behavior problems in school. This workshop, intended for school psychologist who support students with anxiety, will explore anxiety’s role in learning and behavior and give participants a toolkit of practical, preventive strategies that, together with teaching underdeveloped skills, are key to reducing anxiety and promoting appropriate and adaptive behavior in students.

  1. Describe why traditional behavior plans based on rewards and consequences often do not work for students with anxiety or oppositional behavior.

  2. Identify the underdeveloped skills that contribute to inappropriate behavior in students with anxiety or oppositional behavior.

  3. Describe the components of an effective behavior plan including helpful interventions for students with anxiety and oppositional behavior.
