Using Stress-Informed Strategies to Support Students
BaMidbar Wilderness Therapy works to ensure that Jewish youth and young adults have the confidence, skills, and community support to navigate life’s challenges and thrive in the face of adversity.
While stress and anxiety have always been present, we are going through a uniquely stressful moment in time. What are stress, anxiety, and trauma, and how do they impact students? How does an understanding of stress and anxiety help us better structure learning and support our students? How do we mitigate the impacts of stress, and help students expand their “resilience zone?” This interactive session will provide a theoretical framework to understand the impact of stress, anxiety, and trauma on our mind and body, and will provide strategies teachers can use to create stress-informed, supportive environments for their students. Learning objectives include:
Know: Professionals will be able to describe the classroom implications of stress, anxiety, and trauma caused by current events.
Do: Professionals will be able to incorporate activities into their programs that help students regulate stress and expand their resilient zone.
Feel: Professionals will feel empowered to personally focus on stress regulation and will feel prepared to refer students to outside resources when necessary.
