Social Skills Comics: Handling Anxiety in School
- Help children learn to deal with anxiety in helpful and appropriate ways
- Detailed pictures help children observe body language and nonverbal cues
- Ages 7-12
Anxiety is a problem often associated with poor social skills. Kids may be afraid of speaking up in class, taking tests, or interacting with others in the classroom or playground. Characters in the comic strips are shown dealing with anxiety in a "Wrong Way" and then in a more appropriate way. Detailed photos prompt children to take a closer look at dialog, body language, and nonverbal cues in both scenarios. Children will learn that interacting in certain ways may help them feel less anxious in social situations.
