We are in the time within the United States where children are going back to school. This in and of itself can cause anxiety in children and teens, but now we have the fear of coronavirus, needing to follow strict medical protocol that adults are struggling with, and the fears of what it can do to our lives. Further, it has disrupted activities like social gatherings after school, sports, going to the library, etc.
Teresa Reynolds, LCSW, Director of Social Work Field Education at Longwood University, therapist and former K-12 school social worker joins the Key Ministry team to talk about the various perspectives on Fall 2020 back-to-school anxiety, as well as self-care strategies for students, parent, and educators to decrease fear and increase joy.
