Bonus: Test Anxiety & Kids

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

For the young people in our lives, test-taking can evoke feelings of stress and anxiety. As their guardians, teachers, and loved ones, many of us wonder how we can aid them to push past test anxiety and excel in their academic pursuits? Joining me for this conversation is Diane Placide, LPC, NCC, M.Ed. During our conversation we discussed what test anxiety is and what it might look like in a learning environment, how we can prepare our students to feel confident in a classroom or test taking setting, and what resources are available for youth dealing with test anxiety.
