What is EASE?
EASE is a collection of evidence-informed anxiety prevention and resilience-building resources for use with students in grades K-7. The resources use cognitive behavioural strategies to address the thoughts, feelings and behaviours associated with anxiety.
EASE has been available to schools throughout B.C. since 2019.
Classroom activities are aimed at increasing the emotional health and resiliency of all children and are designed to be delivered by classroom teachers, but can be adapted for use by school counsellors, administrators and support staff.
EASE at Home (for Parents and Caregivers)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the EASE classroom activities were adapted for use at home by parents and caregivers to support children’s mental health and continuous learning.
These fun and practical strategies help guide parents and caregivers in managing their children’s anxiety and worries in the comfort of their home during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
