STAGE 4 to 6 TEENAGERS COPING WITH ANXIETY AROUND COVID-19



Over the past six months, Australian students have been affected by drought, bushfires, floods and now a pandemic. Staff have also been significantly affected by these events. 

The IEU has worked with psychologist, Helen Tsamoulous, to create a course specifically designed for teachers working with students in Stages 4 to 6. 

 

This course will cover: 

  • anxiety and depression, how they’re linked and signs to watch 
  • discussing COVID-19 with teenagers 
  • strategies and activities to encourage coping and resilience 
  • the role of responsibility and ownership of the learning journey and a focus on self direction 
  • reflecting on challenges and implementing a growth mindset 
  • self care for teachers and support staff during times of stress and           adjustment.

Completing Stage 4 to 6 Teenagers coping with anxiety around Covid19 will contribute 2 hours of NESA registered PD addressing 1.1.2, 3.1.2, 4.4.2 and 7.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
