Course overview

Do you understand the impact on children of shifting from a structured routine in settings to the social isolation of lockdown and back again? Could you recognise the signs that a child or young person was struggling with these transitions? Do you feel confident about supporting children and young people effectively when they return from lockdown?

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 2-hour webinar will develop your capacity as a Thrive Licensed Practitioner to support the wider staff teams to work with children who are returning from the coronavirus lockdown to a structured routine in settings. You will have the opportunity 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. Then, you will discover some helpful ways to respond to the children and young people when they return to your setting once the lockdown has ended. In particular, you will gain some new, practical strategies, activities and resources, grounded in recent research, that will enhance your own and your colleagues’ ability to support these children and young people moving forwards.

Suitable for

This CPD webinar is ideal for all Thrive Licensed Practitioners dealing with the impact of children and young people moving between school and home during lockdowns, isolations and school bubbles during the pandemic.

This 2-hour webinar is worth 5 CPD points.
