Children from preschool to 12th grade can experience stress and anxiety, although it may be challenging to detect. A free December virtual forum, “Stress and Anxiety in Students,” will help parents understand how stress and anxiety may manifest in their child.
Some of the ways it may reveal itself are negative behaviors or physical symptoms such as headaches or stomachaches. During the virtual forum, hosted by Cave Creek Unified’s Education and Community Services and presented by Kate Werner, parents will learn preventive, calming and intervention strategies and receive additional helpful resources for both parents and children.
Werner earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University at Buffalo and her master’s degree in Counselor Education from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. In addition, she also has her Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Administration.
Werner has worked in education for more than 20 years with students aged PreK-12. She is a certified School Counselor and administrator in both Arizona and New York.
The Virtual Forum, Stress and Anxiety in Students, will be held Dec. 15 from 6:30-8pm, via Zoom.
