The Rise of Anxiety: What Neuroscience Can Teach Us

Professional development (PD) Auckland

Notice reference #: 1HA6Q1

Understanding Resilience / Understanding Ourselves

How we develop resilience (the antidote to anxiety)

The factors in our modern world which are limiting exposure to resilient-building moments

Ways to practically include resilience-building moments into everyday lives of students

It is not all in your mind!  Anxiety and depression are increasing at a significantly rate.  Research in the UK and USA is showing that those born after 1994 (Gen-Z or iGen) have rates of anxiety and depression that are increasing faster than the ‘trend’ would have predicted.  It is increasing for boys, but nearly doubling for girls. Alarming (but not new) information for those dealing with classrooms full of anxious, hypervigilant, and/or depressed students.

This workshop will unpack the neurological basis of resilience, so you can fully understand what we are trying to achieve. Then, we will unpack what it looks like to increase resilience. The fantastic news is that you create resilient-building moments in your classrooms all the time. You just may not be aware of what magic you are doing.

This training will inform you about working to build resilience in those you influence.  It will also help you understand yourself a little bit more, always a bonus! Come along and be informed.

Auckland based event.
