Description

Managing the emotional climate of your classroom is crucial to learning. When children are struggling to manage anxiety, ADHD and anger, they can’t focus on the academic tasks expected of them in a classroom setting. By teaching kids simple, healthy and safe ways to express their emotions and calm their bodies, they will be better able to concentrate on their work during the school day. The positive impact healthy coping skills will have on a child’s academic performance is truly transformational.

In this seminar, we’ll learn how coping skills impact a student’s nervous system, and how to use that knowledge to help kids calm their bodies and get ready to learn. Join coping skills expert and experienced school counselor Janine Halloran, LMHC as she shows you coping skills and techniques ideal for a classroom.

Walk away with a coping skills toolbox:

  • Deep breathing printables
  • Check in sheets
  • ”Anxiety thermometer”
  • Relaxation exercises
  • ”What’s your play personality?”
  • And many more

Be prepared for experiential learning and movement as we try different coping skills like grounding techniques, breathing exercises, and big body movements throughout the day.

Objectives

  1. Develop strategies for teaching kids coping skills that positively impact academic performance and their ability to maintain relationships.

  3. Execute a classroom routine that allows for breaks to benefit both hypo-arousal and hyper-arousal in kids with ADHD.
  4. Utilize mindfulness and grounding techniques that can be used to help children manage their symptoms of anxiety.
  5. Employ methods to determine the source of stress and create a plan to eliminate shutting down or acting out.
  6. Utilize specific movement-based strategies that can effectively intervene in kids’ anger responses.
