We are holding an Anxiety Workshop for parents in school on Friday 19th May at 2.15pm or 4pm. Following the recent parent information sessions we have been made aware that parents would like to have information regarding anxiety in children, the signs to look out for and how to best support children. A letter regarding this will be sent out with your children.
Parents are invited to attend a Parent Information session in school on Tuesday 18th April 2023 to learn about Parent-led Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). Parent-led CBT aims to increase a parent's confidence in their ability to help and support their child overcome anxieties. Anxiety is a normal emotion that can be useful to enhance performance and keep us safe. It can, however become a problem when it interferes with a child's everyday life. Does your child:
- Avoid certain situations?
- Frequently display strong emotions of upset, anger, frustration, shyness?
- Have sleep difficulties?
- Take part in frequent negative self-talk?
- Find themselves scared to be away from parents or carers?
- Worry about/avoid school?
The above list is not exhaustive.
Bryony Carroll from the Piece of Mind team (previously Mental Health Support Team) is offering two sessions to give parents further information on Parent-led Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and how you can help to support your child with this. Please let us know if you can come along to either session on Tuesday 18th April at 2.30pm or 4.30pm by sending back the tear-off slip on the letter which will be sent out soon with all children. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs Rice. See below for the information leaflet.
