Social Avoidance

Dealing with chronic stress, anxiety, and/or difficult emotions at school can interfere with students’ ability to pay attention, learn new information, and perform at their best. Some students refuse to go to school.  There are activities that can help students feel better prepared to cope mentally and emotionally with stress at school. Activities include calming strategies, mindful activities, soothing/distracting activities, self-reflecting activities and wake-me-ups/energy boosting activities.
