The Effects of Anxiety on Learning and Solutions to Help Students
Pippa will unpack the social and neurological roots of the prevalent debilitating condition of anxiety, and outline why it is so important to understand self-regulation in the context of acquiring knowledge and life skills in youth. This phenomenon is not only relevant to children; it has a far reaching impact throughout the lives of our fellow citizens. Knowing how to recognise anxiety, and support the person in learning effective self-regulation strategies early on, not only helps us to prevent our children becoming a part of this national statistic, but supports our greater community as a whole. ”
