During the last two decades as a child/adolescent/adult psychiatrist, I've had the opportunity to educate children, parents, and teachers concerning the topic of anxiety. Anxiety is the most prevalent mental health concern faced by today's children and adolescents. Not learning how to appropriately tolerate failure leaves kids vulnerable to anxiety. It leads to meltdowns when the inevitable failure does occur...and perhaps even more important, it can cause kids to give up on trying new things. There is a growing realization among teachers and other professionals that kids increasingly need help learning how to fail. Only through some successful trial and error can children become resilient adults.
In this Interactive presentation, one dozen best practice tips for building confident students will be addressed. These tips can be used in the classroom the very next day and begin to build self worth in students to help them feel that they can handle what comes their way as they navigate both sinking and swimming.
