Clinical psychologist urges students to avoid "uncertainty bombs" by EducationReview published on 2020-06-16T01:26:48Z Dr Danielle Einstein is a Sydney-based clinical psychologist who has her own practice where she works with students of various ages. Since 2013, she has also been heavily involved in many schools' wellbeing programs. Year 12 has been a difficult and disrupted year in 2020, but Einstein believes students "need to develop skills in being able to pivot and readjust their goals". The psychologist also talks a lot about "uncertainty bombs" that need to be defused before they turn into more serious conditions. Einstein also believes young people need to learn about the healthy and unhealthy ways of dealing with anxiety, and not to lean on friends for serious issues. While a lot of funding and work has gone into school-based wellbeing programs over the years, Einstein thinks they've forgotten one crucial element: how to manage our worries, which she argues is critical. Einstein has developed a downloadable COVID-19 Chilled and Considerate Bootcamp course available for parents, teachers and councillors to teach in school and at home. As Einstein puts it, "the program takes them through a step-by-step guide on strategies and tools in managing uncertainty, anxiety and worry in these COVID-19 times".
