Do you feel confident about supporting children and young people effectively after lockdown? Do you recognise the signs that a child or young person is struggling with these transitions and what you can do to help them?
About this course
The coronavirus lockdown has led to significant changes in the daily lives and routines of us all. For many, the experience of social distancing and isolation is challenging and disorienting, provoking a variety of strong feelings such as anger, grief and confusion.
This two-hour webinar will help adults to explore some of the different ways that children and young people may have been impacted by the lockdown and how this might manifest in their behaviour. You will discover some helpful ways to respond to the children and young people. In particular, you will gain some new, practical strategies, activities and resources, grounded in recent research, that will enhance your own ability to support children and young people moving forwards.
You will come away from this webinar with:
• a deeper insight into what happens for children and young people when they are going through experiences of significant change and loss
• an understanding of how to support children and young people when they return from lockdown
• a range of new activities, resources and techniques to draw on
• a greater awareness of your own needs and resources.
The webinar is ideal for anyone caring for or working with children and young people - parents and carers, support workers, teaching assistants and teachers, childminders and nannies, and health and social care professionals.
The cost is £15.00 (including £2.50 VAT) per person. Payment is required at the time of booking.
