March 4, 2020 2:04 pm
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College’s director of counseling services, Emily Holmes, made a presentation on anxiety at a national conference of college counselors.
Holmes presented “Worried to Death: The Anxiety Epidemic and What to Do About It” at the American College Counseling Association conference in Washington, D.C.
In her presentation, Holmes noted that today’s college students are more likely to suffer from anxiety than their peers of decades past – and that they have real reasons for doing so.
She discussed anxiety’s prevalence, consequences, physiology and cultural contributors and suggested strategies to her peers for changing campus culture, in addition to individual counseling sessions, to help address the issue of anxiety among students.
Holmes holds a B.S. from Western Carolina University and an M.S. and Ed.S. from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She is both a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina. She joined the college staff in 2013.
