About the course:

“We are living in unprecedented and uncertain times. The coronavirus crisis has resulted in wide scale and rapid changes to the whole of society that we are all adapting and reacting to. This particularly applies to children, who have found their routines, friendships and support systems radically changed and many are struggling with the physical and mental pressures resulting from these changes. Understandably for many people, anxiety levels are high.

This is why it is now more important than ever that parents and carers understand how to support and build emotional resilience in children and young people and are equipped with the tools to talk to their children so they understand how to successfully bounce back from the challenges they face right now.

The aim of this course is to help parents and caregivers to understand and develop emotional resilience for you and your family.
