Angst – Learn How It Impacts Our Knights

Angst—Learn How It Impacts Our Knights Mark your calendars. Join us Thursday evening, 8/24, as we kick off a family/school partnership aimed at the well-being of our students—making Newport a place where all students thrive academically and personally. In this first evening, learn what protects our students from the toxic impact of anxiety. Watch with us the film "Angst," an engaging 50-minute IndieFlix piece that looks at anxiety, its causes, effects, and what we can do to manage it. Bring your student with you to this film; it was designed with them in mind. As challenges surface, it may help them to relax when they know how deeply many teens share their worries. Purchase tickets on line at www.bit.ly/2vJ2ECE ($10 general admission; free for students with ID, but students MUST RSVP on the ticket website). After the film, one of "Angst’s" featured experts, Dr. Cora Breuner of Seattle Children’s Hospital, will join us to answer audience questions. Newport staff and community members will join her to reflect on what the film, your questions, and Dr. Breuner’s advice means in our school. Focusing on people under the age of 21, “Angst” features interviews with kids and young adults who suffer, or have suffered, from anxiety—and what they’ve learned about it. "Angst" also asks professionals charged with helping people manage their anxiety how best to deal with it when it inhibits learning and well-being. Anxiety Touches All Students Anxiety starts small. The film features teens whose racing heart and trembling hands have disrupted their ability to complete basic school assignments. Yet for many teens, it starts with the common worries and nervousness that every student feels. Our brains use anxiety and chemicals like adrenaline to jump-start our response to everyday challenges. Much in our contemporary world gives students cause for worry, including:
  • Fitting in and making connections as they discover their own interests and seek entrance to circles where others share their passions;
  • Admittance to a college that will open the doors to their dreams;
  • Instant access to unfiltered internet portrayals of the often unstable and unpredictable economic and political climate that will shape their adult lives.
Join Us for ‘Knights Thriving’  If student well-being concerns you, if you want to help shape the climate at Newport, we will meet again a few weeks into the school year. I ask that you join with us, working toward helping our students thrive in every way. Working with you, I want our school to build our students’ capacity to manage the pressures of academics, college and career plans, and the social and personal challenges of moving from adolescent to adult. The Film’s Developers  You can learn more about "Angst" and the talent and expertise behind the film on the IndieFlix website. The following individuals played key roles:
  • Cora Breuner, MPH, is a member of the Division of Adolescent Medicine and the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Department at Seattle Children’s Hospital. She is a Professor of Pediatrics and Adjunct Professor of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She is board certified in Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
  • Producer Scilla Andreen is the CEO and Co-Founder of IndieFlix and the founder of the IndieFlix Foundation. She is an Emmy nominated costume designer and award-winning producer of such films as "Outpatient," "The Flats," "Bit Players," "The Empowerment Project" and the recently released "Screenagers," a documentary about screen time. She is a popular speaker at Sundance, Cannes, and Women in Film.
  • Laura Kastner is a clinical psychologist and professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at University of Washington. The nationally recognized author has appeared on The Today Show and the McNeil/Lehrer News Hour. She lectures frequently on parenting adolescents and children, the effects of affluence on child-rearing, launching teens to college, emotional intelligence, and character education. Her books have been recommended by notable authors, including Drs. Brazelton, Dweck, Gottman, Linehan, and Siegel. They are lauded for both their evidence-based research and their solutions to challenges in child-rearing.
