Webinar Recording: "Why We Like and Need Closure, Avoid and Dislike Ambiguity, and Strive to Reduce the Stress and Anxiety Caused by It All”.
I was really excited about this topic when Maurice and I began planning but I found myself feeling even more glad we chose this topic when I participated in the webinar myself. Maurice gave me so many things to think about as we closed out the school year. I thought of all the times that I may have unknowingly caused my kids stress by preventing them from having closure - those times when I was running late and we couldn’t finish a game or another activity, and even worse, when I cleaned up the activity when they were at school after I had promised we could finish it later. Maurice also talked about the importance of finding ways to get to “closure” for students who will not change teachers and/or classrooms like their peers do. Lastly, the information presented on stress and anxiety was spot on as well. As someone who has struggled with stress and anxiety, I found this session especially reassuring. I highly recommend checking out this webinar series this summer if you have time. It is offered for PD credit at University of Idaho.
