Depression is a disorder of motivation making even mildly depressed students challenging to teach. In this seminar we explain ways to optimize motivation for a depressed student and set up a learning system that diffuses the disengaged approach to learning that is characteristic of depression.
The Anxious Student

There are things an educator can do to help the anxious student learn and often the strategies aren’t obvious. The “He should just/ She should just…..” approach doesn’t work and actually creates more resistance. Learn what to do in this seminar.
