Ep10: Dealing with Teen Anxiety

Today, we are talking about teen anxiety, something that I like to feature with students every school year at this time. For the past two weeks, I have partnered with our school counselor, Andrew Palmer, in a presentation for Year9 (8th grade) students. It's been a fantastic couple of weeks of in-depth conversations with our students on an issue that is all too real for some of them.

Today's podcast features our first guest interview, our school counselor, Andrew Palmer. As we did with our Year9 student presentation, Mr. Palmer will talk first about anxiety, what it is, and why schools need to help students recognize it. After the interview, I will feature 12 fiction and nonfiction titles that will help teens learn to recognize and manage their own anxiety.
