Two leaders in the field of children's mental health will be presenting webinars for parents, teachers and anyone else interested in this important subject area.
With much uncertainty remaining about the emotional impact of the pandemic on children, the webinars, organised by leading education company Thrive®, will provide insights and analysis to help inform parents and educators.
Clinical psychologist and author Kim S Golding will be delivering three live webinars on May 26, June 8 and June 10. These will focus on how children can be supported and helped to regulate their emotions in educational environments. California-based paediatric psychologist and author Mona Delahooke will deliver a live webinar on July 9 that will focus on identifying factors that can underlie children's behaviours.
The webinars have been organised by Thrive, which was established 25 years ago to train teachers and other education professionals to support the emotional and social development of all children. They are part of Thrive's annual Forging New Connections conference series and are being held online because of the Covid-19 pandemic. This will allow more people with an interest in children's mental and emotional wellbeing to attend.
The webinars can be used as CPD points for Thrive Licensed Practitioners® and will give those working in education, health and social care, as well as parents and carers, an insight into how to develop strong bonds with children and how to respond appropriately to any distressed behaviour they may show.
"This year has brought unprecedented challenges for both our children and young people and those who are working to support them. At Thrive, we know that the best way to help a child who is struggling is to provide a stable and secure connection with a trusted adult. These webinars will help both education professionals and parents and carers to feel better-equipped to relate to the young people in their lives, who will then be better able to re-engage with learning and with life as we recover from the pandemic," said Diana Dewing, Managing Director of Thrive.
