Richard Hewison – Unit Coordinator and Lecturer – ECC

Beyondblue, an independent, bi-partisan agency focused on mental health, states that the incidence of anxiety affects about 1 in 4 Australians, directly.  Not to mention those living with people suffering from anxiety.

In this event,  Richard and Ann will explore the impact of anxiety both in and out of our classrooms.  Richard will share the ideas he recently presented at a conference in Australia on the issues for international students and anxiety as well as also explore the role of teachers and the broader institution in supporting students dealing with anxiety.
