Social Emotional

9th Grade Anxiety Group Interest Form
We are excited to offer an anxiety management group through our school social worker Mr. Nguyen.
This group will focus on anxiety and stress management, learning about how anxiety operates, increasing emotional awareness, and practicing science-based coping strategies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills and mindfulness-based techniques.
This is a 8-week group that meets once a week for about 45 minutes during the school day. The exact date and time is still being determined, but will be communicated to those who express interest. Space is limited, so a waitlist may be created for a future group if the sign-ups exceed capacity.
Please note that parental/guardian permission is required after signing up to participate in the group. This will be provided to you upon the first meeting with the group facilitator.
