Counseling Resources

Douglas County School District Counselors have teamed with Dr. Scott Cypers to create a video series to help parents understand how to help their children with Anxiety. This series will be ongoing throughout the remainder of the school year and a new video will be released every few weeks. These 20-30 minute video videos are designed to provide parents with an understanding of anxiety and provide some actionable tools to help their children. Dr. Cypers is a nationally recognized expert on child and adolescent anxiety and is the director of stress and anxiety at Johnson Depression Center.

Here is the link to the first video: Understanding Your Brain and How Anxiety Fits Into the Picture
