Students have expressed that the psychoeducation piece on how stress connects to procrastination was very helpful. This portion of the presentation is filled with visuals on the projector to help students understand the procrastination cycle. Students have shared that they didn’t realize that procrastination was a stress response. They also found it normalizing and validating to hear so many of their classmates feeling the same way, especially after returning to in-person instruction following distance learning.
This is just one example of the many ways clinicians get to provide Tier 1 interventions in our school communities while also strengthening their relationships with school staff they work with. We are so grateful for the collaboration with our teachers and the invitation to discuss mental health and wellness topics with students throughout the year!
