How to Help Students Deal with Stress and Distress
Stress is a common feature of a student's experience; from preparing for exams and transitioning to new school environments, to thinking of larger goals after graduation. In most cases, students are able to cope with their stress but above certain levels, stress can lead to distress, which can significantly impact academic outcomes, social relationships and self-perceptions.

Aside from cursory overviews, there have been few options for educators who want to understand and help students who struggle with distress. It is from these struggles that this webinar was created; to provide detailed, highly accessible and practical solutions that help educators understand why distress occurs, how distress impacts students differently and what educators can do when they observe a student in distress. The webinar will incorporate multimedia and handouts so that educators have tools to use for students after the webinar.

The webinar is designed for educators of all types, including classroom teachers, school-based mental health professionals, and administrators.
