Conquer Test Anxiety
Monday, September 26, 2011
Do you have a student that doesn't perform to their ability in school because of test anxiety? Two Fairfield women have created a program to help students overcome test anxiety leading to better performance and results.
Judy Myers, ACSW, LCSW and Suzanne Butzko, MA, NCC, LPC, both psychotherapists specializing in student and family issues have launched TestURBest, workshops designed to teach proven skills to eliminate testing anxiety.
Severe test anxiety can paralyze even well-prepared students and cause them to perform less than they are capable of. The good news is that the factors that contribute to text anxiety be conquered and these workshops help students learn how. In a series of four 65 minute interactive sessions, students learn the causes and signs of anxiety and the simple, but powerful ways to replace anxiety with calm confidence.
The Test UR Best Worskhop consists of four - 65 minute group workshops.
Develops the concept of conquering test anxiety by identifying its stages and components. Developing an assessment of your own particular anxiety symptoms and behaviors which are then addressed directly in the course of the session.
