Genesis Counseling Center at Nurturing Student Achievement Training
Genesis Counseling Center recently attended Healthy Choices for Youth’s “Nurturing Student Achievement” training for Virginia Beach City Public Schools.
Ramsey Goshert, MA, LPC, presented on the rising levels of anxiety and how students are impacted in school. The presentation focused on how anxiety disorders can impact student success as well as tips and tools to help public school employees assist students with managing life with an anxiety disorder.
Dr. Cynthia Kokoris, Psy. D, LCP, presented on grief and trauma. From local, national, and world events, many schools need to adapt to meet the needs of students and families. Nine out of 10 children will experience the death of a family member or close friend, and one in 20 will lose a parent. Dr. Kokoris provided information on tips and strategies to assist school counselors with grief counseling.
