Dealing With Separation Anxiety – Child Guidance – (3hrs)

Dealing With Separation Anxiety - Child Guidance - 3 Credit Hours


Thank you for registering for this course!

As teachers and child care givers, we have all experienced tearful, tantrum-filled goodbyes associated with separation anxiety. Though separation anxiety is a perfectly normal stage of development, it can be unsettling and difficult to handle. This course not only provides you with a comprehensive understanding of separation anxiety but also equips you with positive coping strategies to help relieve that anxiety.

In this class you will be asked to read a series of articles concerning separation anxiety and children. After each article you will take a quiz on the material that you read. Don’t worry, these quizzes are to help you identify the important elements of what you have read. You may take the quiz as many times as you wish by clicking on the “Restart Quiz” button. Once you feel comfortable with the material, click on the “Return to Class” button and to move forward and read the next article. At the end of the class, you will take a final test consisting of the questions you have answered along the way. You must receive an 80% score to earn your certificate. Once again, you can take the test as many times as needed to pass by clicking on “Restart Quiz”. Once you have passed the test, a certificate will appear. Click on "Download Certificate" and then print the certificate from the download. Please complete the class survey so we know how we are doing and what we can do to make your experience better. A record of completion of the class will be kept in your user account along with a copy of the certificate. You may reprint your certificate at any time upon completion of the class.
