Dr. Brian Chu from Rutgers University was speaking on school avoidance and anxiety disorders in school. There was a subsequent presentation on Executive Functioning. What was new information for me was Dr. Chu’s discussion of anxiety and how students needs to be encouraged to work through their worries because it is only the success of working through it which minimizes the length and intensity of subsequent outburts/anxiety spells. The slides presented were a good reference and the information was useful to share with one of my cases.
