Challenges Facing Our Schools: Anxiety, Depression, and the Disconnection of Our Youth

Challenges Facing Our Schools: Anxiety, Depression, and the Disconnection of Our Youth…Using Growth Mindset to Create a Context of Insight, Accountability and Healing

DATES:  September 10-11, 2018

TIME:  9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

LOCATION:  Asheville Event Center



This two-day workshop with Kaye Randall is in response to the positive feedback from her Mental Health Challenges workshop last spring. We will look at the context within which our children are living today…a context of disconnection, fear, anxiety, and blame. Often we address mental and behavioral health issues from a divisive, fearful, punitive or overly unhelpful approach which can increase the feelings of loneliness, anger or disconnection, and can lead to severe emotional, behavioral and mental health problems.

Participants will learn individual, classroom and schoolwide strategies that will support identification, insight, understanding and compassion for all youth, and will have important tools in helping staff and students learn social and emotional skill sets that will help them be more in control of and responsible for their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We will explore innovative strategies and solutions in helping to identify and help youth at risk.  Kaye Randall, MSW, LISW-CP, is a clinical therapist, author and speaker. She is co-owner and director of Turning Point Counseling in West Columbia, South Carolina.  She is the co-author of See My Pain: Creative Strategies for Helping Young People Who Self-Injure, Mean Girls: 101 ½ Strategies for Working with Relational Aggression, and 102 Strategies and Activities in Working with Depressed Children and Adolescents.  Contact Hours: 10
