Anxiety Training for Schools:
Training for Your Entire School Community

Anxiety Training for Schools Image of Student in HallwayThe rise of anxiety in children and students is a mental health crisis facing 1 in 3 youth in our country. And, nearly 80% of these children and teens suffer without help or a diagnosis. Anxiety Training for Schools will help your school community alleviate the fear and worry that face your students.  

As a teacher, administrator, or guidance counselor, you know the struggles of children with anxiety. They often have academic and social challenges, making it hard for them to stay on track with learning goals, in addition to being at risk for low self-esteem and substance abuse. And, while you know the risk factors, you likely also struggle to meet the needs of students with anxiety.  

You are not alone.

For 10 years, we have delivered live, in-person trainings to school communities and have listened to others just like you. We’ve heard your need for effective tools to coach students into living well with anxiety. 

What We Offer to School Districts for Coaching Students with Anxiety

Anxiety Training for Schools is a virtual training series for school communities (teachers, staff, students, and parents) to help children and students take back their lives from anxiety, to face their fears, and live a life they value. It provides an actionable, evidence-based approach for parents, teachers, and staff to coach students. 

By supporting your students who have anxiety, they will be more effective learners.

This program teaches your whole school community

  • what happens in the brain to engage the anxiety response and   
  • how to retrain the brain to handle uncertainty, change, and distress. 
And it does so through three, engaging trainings: 
  • Tools to Help Your Students Live Well with Distress and Uncertainty for Staff
  • Winning the Anxiety Game for Students
  • Helping Your Child be Effective with Anxiety for Parents

What Makes Anxiety Training for Schools a Successful Program?

Anxiety Training for Schools uses a unique, three-tiered system that trains teachers and staff, parents, and students in the same techniques, using the same language to coach students with anxiety. This unified approach empowers your school community to embrace the anxiety paradox: walking towards fear, talking back to worry, and sitting in discomfort are the keys to changing our relationship with fear. 

Your school district and parents will learn how to support children and students with anxiety in these ways.   

  • Teachers and staff will develop language and action steps that help anxious students become more resilient. 
  • Parents will understand the role of anxiety in families and how to partner with schools to help their children live well with anxiety.
  • Students will learn why they feel anxious and specific steps to feel better.
  • Everyone will learn skills to shift out of avoidance and accommodations and into doing what they value even when they feel anxious.

How do I use Anxiety Training for Schools?

Once you purchase this bundle, you can download each video to share it with your target audience, in the format and timeframe that works for you.

Use it as SEL curriculum or part of speech and language pragmatics.  Share it with students in health, English, or math classes. Show it to faculty and staff in meetings. View it with parents at PTA meetings. 

In any setting, show the video, create small groups to process, and let the group leader use the handout with questions to aid in processing.  Through processing, you create a safe environment for everyone to share their experience with anxiety. And, processing also helps set the conditions for future success at tackling the challenges of anxiety for your whole school community.

Anxiety Training has had many requests from school districts for trainings and webinars for the upcoming year. In response, we have given this careful thought and will be providing 3 offerings that will be about 45 min each. These can be used as stand- alone webinars for students and staff to watch and/or discuss with each other. We would also be happy to provide a live option that you would host where we would watch the webinars together and provide online Q&A. If you have any questions, please contact us at

For Teachers and Staff

Tools to Help Students Live Well with Distress and Uncertainty



Kimberly Morrow, LCSW and Elizabeth DuPont Spencer, LCSW-C, have provided our mental health staff with tangible and practical information and guidance in our work with students experiencing Anxiety and the associated behavioral issues. Their ability to consult on K-12 cases and provide direction has allowed our staff and students to move forward toward positive outcomes. There is universal agreement that spending an hour or two in consultation with Kimberly or Elizabeth is well worth the time and effort. We look forward to a sustained and continual relationship with AnxietyTraining.

Benefits for Families

When I received Kimberly Morrow's flyer in the mail offering a one-day workshop ‘Face It & Feel It,’ I was skeptical that so much material on the treatment of anxiety could be presented in such a short amount of time. I was not disappointed. In fact, it has been a while since I attended a workshop that offered so many treatment strategies in such a succinct, down-to-earth, client-friendly, and efficient manner. Kimberly has a special gift of delivery of the material that she has so obviously mastered in her practice over the years. I have been sharing the workshop ‘gems’ with my colleagues and we look forward to incorporating them into our therapy sessions. She has brought new life to our work!

For Students

Effective Strategies to Develop Resilience During Challenging and Uncertain Times



Your workshops have really inspired me and re-energized me around feeling like I can really help those with anxiety (we are just seeing SO much of it in our building alone)! I tell everyone I can that they absolutely HAVE to go to one of your workshops if they get the chance! Thanks again!

When Will We See Results in Our Students with Anxiety?

Immediately. And we mean it.  

Once children understand their brain and how to change it, they can implement these skills quickly so they can get back to learning. This is especially true when they have the combined support of their teachers, staff and parents.

And, once educators can identify anxiety in children and students, they can immediately implement language that is helpful. 

Your entire school community will see positive results as soon as they apply the strategies and language.  

What’s Different About Anxiety Training for Schools?

Anxiety Training for Schools shifts away from the harmful paradigm of accommodating the anxious thoughts and behavior of students. And, it leans into the evidence-based practice of increased tolerance of uncertainty and discomfort to manage anxiety.

This program includes engaging real-life stories from students and parents. 

  • Listen to a student share his experience with anxiety and how he got better. 
  • View to the powerful story of a family and learn how accommodating their daughter’s anxiety was the opposite of what was helpful. Witness how appropriately handling anxiety freed their family. 

We’ve included printable handouts, including a special resource with easy-to-implement strategies for coaching children and students through anxiety.   

Does this Program Address the Pandemic?


If you act now and purchase the entire Anxiety Training for Schools Program, you’ll also receive “Coronavirus Stress: 10 Simple and Powerful Coping Strategies for Parents” as a free, bonus resource. 

Act Now & Break the Cycle of Student Anxiety

Without a unified, evidence-based approach, the number of anxious students in your school will steadily increase. Your teachers will continue to write accommodations for students who can’t handle their symptoms.  And, tensions will continue to escalate in your school community as you battle out which approach works best.

Maybe you know this cycle of implementing strategies that only serve to strengthen the hold of anxiety on your students?
