Meeting Emma Jane

September 11, 2018

Today Emma Jane came to talk to the grade 10s.  She talked about her role as adolescent care worker (ACW).  She’s here to help with issues at school or at home, with friends/family/mental health etc.  She has a service dog in training with her, so we also learned a bit about service dogs, and that we need to not interact with them when they have their vest on (because they are working and shouldn’t be distracted).

We talked about the progressive muscle relaxation (in the poster) and the stretches that go with each word.

We talked about strategies to reduce stress and anxiety including deep breathing, thought stopping, and mindfulness.  We also discussed keeping time for self care in our busy schedules so we don’t get overwhelmed!
