To kick off the new year, we are pleased to be offering a webinar on Alleviating Exam Anxiety. Almost all students struggle at some point with anxiety around exams, and we hope this informative session will break some bad habits and give students a fresh perspective on coping with writing an exam and stressful situations in general. This session is open to all members.
Alleviating Exam Anxiety: Challenging Thinking
Anxiety is a normal response to stress but it can feel debilitating in the moment. At its worst it can negatively impact our work and our lives. Reducing anxiety takes time and practice but we can interrupt the cycle of anxiety when we know how it operates. In this seminar, participants will learn to identify unhelpful thinking styles, challenge and modify ways of thinking, and think in a more “balanced” way. These strategies will help decrease anxiety and conquer the thoughts that show up when in heightened anxiety provoking situations. The webinar will also look at preventative measures to moderate stress before it creeps in.
