Anxiety and Phobia Awareness for Educators
Course #: EDUC_718R
Semester Credits: 3
Anxiety and phobias are not new phenomena. “Research conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health has shown that anxiety disorders are the number one mental health problem among American women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men.” So, why are problems with anxiety and phobias increasing? Mental health issues are becoming more prevalent in adults and our youth who are inundated with new environmental, social, and technological changes. As mental health awareness continues to gain traction as something less stigmatized, it is time to become more aware of how to understand, recognize, and develop resources for ourselves and our students.
Whether you are a teacher, administrator, counselor, or school nurse, you will benefit from the research and readily-applicable tools presented in the texts.
