What Are Some of the Struggles Facing Students Today?

The current K-12 students are facing higher levels of anxiety and depression than any generation before, and that was before the coronavirus pandemic hit. No doubt, our students are resilient. They are adaptable. With time, they will overcome this new challenge.

That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take the steps to ease the transition for them. Thriveworks Franklin in-person and online therapists have worked with students of all ages for years. If online counseling sounds appealing, know that online therapy is just as effective as in-person counseling and for many challenges including:

  • Loneliness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Worsening symptoms of eating disorders
  • Boredom or restlessness
  • Feeling isolated from friends and passions
  • Loss of self

The experiences of a child, adolescent, and teenager are all different, and each student will react to the coronavirus differently. Online therapy is a way to meet them where they are at, no matter what.

Benefits of Online Student Counseling

When it comes to your student, virtual therapy is just another tool they can use to adjust, adapt, and conquer. Online therapy offers many benefits, including:

  • Comfortable: Grab your favorite beverage and get cozy, because you don’t even have to leave your room for this counseling session.
  • Convenient: It’s easy to cancel and move appointments when they’re virtual. Without drive time and waiting room time, there’s a lot less to worry about.
  • Safe: With the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual therapy is a necessity to staying safe. Beyond the physical safety of online therapy, the distance can actually make clients feel more safe and secure. Being surrounded by things that comfort you can make it easier to open up and will expediate the counseling process.
  • Beneficial: Virtual therapy has all the same benefits as in-person counseling, and for some people, especially students, the virtual aspect of online therapy makes counseling even more beneficial.
