Working With Kids With Anxiety: A Jewish Approach

Working With Kids With Anxiety:
A Jewish Approach

Anxiety and depression are prevalent right now for our kids. As educators, we can use and model language that helps reinforce healthier thinking patterns – language straight from our Jewish tradition. Drawing on the principles of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and personal experience with children struggling with depression and anxiety, we’ll focus on helpful – potentially life-saving– tools and language for our youth.



  • Share how anxiety and other mental health challenges show up in our educational environments, among students, staff, and families.
  • Identify hallmark unhealthy thinking patterns that show up frequently with depression and anxiety.
  • Focus on Jewish texts and values that can be used as a lens for modeling and teaching healthier thinking habits in our educational environments.
  • Brainstorm the creative applications of these texts for our individual teaching contexts
