Bounce Back  - half day workshop

Building Resilience and Reducing Anxiety in Children

How to build up …and how to help.

This workshop is suitable for those working in early childhood services and teachers/teachers aides in new entrant and Y1 classes.

Childhood is quite an anxious time. Children are tasked with learning new skills, meeting new challenges, overcoming fears, and navigating a world that doesn’t always make sense. But sometimes these fears or stressors prove too much to handle, and the normal comforts that adults can provide don’t quite seem to be enough. At these times children might become more emotional, they might withdraw, they might become defiant, angry or resentful.

The good news is there are effective strategies to help manage anxiety. Join us at this informative and practical half-day workshop - learn skills and gather helpful tools to support children in the anxious moments and situations that cause stress.
