Dr. Laura Koehler on Coping Strategies to Regulate Anxiety

Glenbard North school counselor Julie Shannon (left) attended the GPS program with Dr Laura Koehler (right) entitled Coping Strategies to Regulate Anxiety: An Introduction to Distress Tolerance on September 15

"This was a great workshop from a knowledgeable presenter who shared both useful and practical tips. Dr Koehler suggested in order to regulate your emotions, you should take the opposite action of your emotion. If you have fear, do what you're afraid of.  Or, if you're angry, do something nice for someone. If you're sad, get active. Validate the negative and move forward."
