We are pleased to congratulate the BC Children's and BC Women's investigators who were awarded funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant Spring 2019 competition. Our research community received nine new research and bridge grants totaling more than $5.8 million.
Dr. Juliana Negreiros, in collaboration with Anxiety Canada and the Ministry of Children and Family Development, helped develop a province-wide package of classroom resources for K-7 educators designed to help students manage everyday worries and anxiety. These resources, called EASE (Everyday Anxiety Strategies for Educators), are based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles and align directly with the BC Ministry of Education curriculum.
EASE workshops and resources are available for Primary (K-3) and Intermediate (4-7) educators and are provided at no cost to BC teachers, school counsellors and other educators who participate in one day of interactive professional development.
