Test Anxiety

The end of the school year is upon us, and brings with it the mad rush to complete summative assignments and prepare for final exams. Writing exams can increase anxiety, and can be especially challenging for individuals with performance anxiety. Some adolescents may find listening to a relaxation exercise helpful. This one is geared specifically to tests and exams. It may be helpful to listen to the recording several times, over several days, prior to writing the first exam. Please feel free to provide feedback about the recording to drwalker@theclinicondupont.com.
