SETLN2037 Mental Health - supporting students with anxiety and depression

Presenter: Bernadette Sheedy

Description:
There is an alarming increase in numbers of students who are suffering from anxiety and depression in today’s classrooms, and these issues often prevent them from engaging in the learning or achieving their potential. These barriers can be frustrating for the teacher and the student and can often lead to the student removing themselves further from the school community. In this course we will explore techniques that you can use when you are working with students who suffer from anxiety and depression, helping you to reengage the students while they deal with their condition.

Course Length: 60 minutes

Standards addressed:
  • 4.3.2 Manage challenging behaviour
  • 1.5.2 Differentiate teaching to meet the specific learning needs of learners across the full range of abilities
