Part 1 — FIND the Calm in the Storm: A program for any educator seeking to manage their own stress and worry
Thursday, February 17 @ 7PM
How we support others depends on how we care for ourselves. And many of us are in positions of supporting others without the resources to care for ourselves. Join Andree Palmgren, Ed.M, M.A, of the Anxiety Institute for an interactive workshop that will help participants navigate stress and uncertainty. Learn why our stress response system is a critical component of our mental health, why anxiety is normal and also when it’s not, and build a toolkit of practical strategies that can help us recover and reset.

Part 2 — BE the Calm in the Storm: A program for any educator seeking strategies to support or manage anxious students, colleagues, or parents.
Thursday, February 24 @ 7PM
5 Anxiety Busters to Help the Worrier, Ruminator, Black and White Thinker, Procrastinator and Perfectionist. In this workshop, Andree will walk you through a step-by-step strategy to use when someone worries a lot, obsesses over the same thought, doesn’t function well in the gray space, pushes things off until the last minute, or applies a perfectionistic attitude to what they do.
