Anxiety is the number one reason students and parents come to me for help. I frequently use the free resources located at The STOP Plan is one of the ones I use the most. When people are anxious they need to be taught to become aware of their unhelpful thoughts and think more realistically to lower their distress. Children need to be coached to change unhelpful automatic thoughts into those that will be helpful. This form helps guide that discussion. You can also send home a copy to parents if they want to use the same tools you are using in counseling. With upper grade students this could be used in a group for emotion regulation.
