School & Social Stress

Navigating the multiple demands of the school or college environment can be difficult. Social pressures and academic expectations can take a toll on the strongest kids. If a child has social anxieties, this can cause them to act out in ways their peers and adults may not understand. When working with children, parents are included jointly in the plan in order to transfer those newly developed skills to the real-world setting.

We collaborate with teachers, social workers, parents, and the child to find ways to help accommodate and minimize the triggers which may cause a child’s anxiety and stress. By finding the right solution for your child, and putting it in place together, the child will have a better overall experience at school and at home.

If you would like to speak about dealing with anxiety or stress for yourself or a loved one, please contact Konick & Associates today.
