The New Anxiety: Handling today’s Stressed-Out Parents and Children

Ron Taffel

Today’s teachers are critically aware of heightened anxiety, impulsivity and difficulty with self-regulation for both children and their parents. This directly impacts what teachers, no matter how skilled, are able to accomplish in their classrooms. Dr. Taffel describes the causes of these behaviors, and presents the latest, tested strategies for teachers to use with children as well as with parents – to diminish their anxieties while increasing their cooperation.
