EASE 8-12: Everyday Anxiety Strategies for Secondary Educators

In this NEW online course, you will learn from B.C. educators and students about their experiences with anxiety, and learn ways to incorporate EASE strategies with your students or in your secondary classroom. The resources and activities are intended to help you further build a supportive learning environment for all students in any secondary course or class.

The EASE 8–12 course will help you:

  • understand anxiety and recognize it both in your students and in yourself
  • understand the difference between everyday and problem anxiety
  • understand the psychological theory that informs EASE and the cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles on which EASE is based
  • strengthen your mental health literacy

You’ll receive practical, flexible, curriculum-aligned, evidence-supported information and strategies to better equip you to support everyday (mild to moderate) anxiety in your grades 8–12 classrooms, and a certificate of completion.
