We were very lucky to have Embrace Psychology in to lead our latest parent workshop. Demand was so high that we had to have two events! Dr Georgina Batten and Dr Tinisha Kennedy did an excellent interactive presentation that enabled our parents to enhance their knowledge and confidence in supporting their child to feel calmer, happier and become more resilient. The workshop covered:

• What causes anxiety and keeps it going
• How anxiety affects us, in our bodies, thoughts and behaviour
• Parent based strategies to support your child
• Strategies that children can do themselves
• What to do if difficulties increase and your child needs additional support
• Strategies that are scientifically evidenced, based on a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework and follow NICE guidelines

For more information about future parent workshops, please speak to Mrs K Greenwood, Director of Pastoral.
