These assignments often cause students anxiety, and as finals get nearer, this anxiety will only intensify.

How can we help students manage and decrease their performance-related anxiety? In this CTL workshop, Kristen Cooper, one of Normandale’s counselors, will share strategies for helping students deal with anxiety—test anxiety in particular, but also anxiety related to class participation, presentations, etc.

Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone you think might find this information useful. We hope to see you all there!
