Webinar: Tips for Successfully Transitioning Back to School
July 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Transitioning back to school can be difficult for many learners – learn how to build confidence and reduce anxiety for your learner.
As the return to school starts to approach, the anxiety in many learners starts to build and often results in a difficulty completing normal daily tasks like sleeping, eating and exercising. Research shows that students with untreated anxiety disorders are at higher risk of poor academic performance and lose out on important social experiences. Proper planning along with prioritizing anxiety management is essential to successfully transitioning back to school.
In this webinar, we’ll review reasons why many students struggle with transitioning back to school and discuss practical tips that can help with this transition. This will be a 30-minute discussion followed by an opportunity for attendees to directly interact with the speakers through a live Q&A seslosion.
