Helping your child with fears and worries
The Educational Psychology Service and Primary Mental Health Team have been running regular half termly virtual parent workshops on helping your child with fears and worries. These are always very well received by parents and, as such, we are offering further dates (below).
The aim of the programme is to teach parents cognitive behavioural strategies so they can use them with their children to overcome their anxiety. It is based on the book: ‘Overcoming your child’s worries and fears’ by Cathy Cresswell and Lucy Willetts. The group will be a 2.5 hour online workshop – a “whistle stop tour” of key principles for parents.
There are two further sessions planned for the summer term:
Sessions will be via Teams. We have capacity for around 4 – 10 participants each session.
The following information will help you to decide if your child would benefit from the workshop:
If you are interested, please email Wilma Williams and include: your name, email and phone number (for contact – they will be emailed a Teams link) and your child’s age and school. Please also state which of the dates for the course they are to make, and whether you have a preferred date – so we can allocate spaces.
