Current Trends in Stress and Anxiety: Spotting and Supporting It

COVID is triggering anxiety in individuals that were previously successfully managing their emotions, in turn, our more vulnerable individuals to experience significant challenges managing their anxiety. We will start with an overview of anxiety, separating fact vs. fiction, followed by concrete approaches for how camp staff could proactively support anxiety management, do so in the moment (responsively), while also managing their own emotions to avoid reacting in unproductive ways.

Thursday, April 28, 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET, E-Session on Zoom

Cost: $25 for individual ACA members; $40 for non-members

This session will be recorded and shared with registered attendees who are unable to join live to watch for 30 days.
