Anxiety Management 101 Workshop:   The Anxiety Management 101 Workshop is a series of 4 classes.   The purpose is to teach skills for managing the physiological symptoms of anxiety, challenging anxious thoughts, and coping with test anxiety.   Students are not expected to share personal information, talk about their experiences of anxiety, or even share their name with other students in the room.   If what you’ve tried thus far hasn’t worked or you would like to learn new skills, it might be beneficial to give this workshop a try.
