Anxiety Training for Schools

Coach Anxious Children & Teens Into Empowered, Confident Students

Help Your Students Cope With Anxiety

The 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.

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

Your school community will learn how to support the anxious student in these ways:

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.  

AnxietyTraining.com 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.
