For teachers of Teenagers or Young Adults
Befriending the anxious mind- a practical path to calm in the classroom

Strong emotions can arise such as anger, frustration, sadness and anxiety. So how can we best equip ourselves for this new reality as teachers? And how can we help both ourselves and our students stay present, in this ever-changing landscape?
