For Professionals: Helping Kids Manage Covid 19 Change

MANAGING CHANGE AND PROMOTING GROWTH

This workshop has been designed to support children with managing change.

It has been written in direct response to the recent Covid-19 pandemic and with consideration of resultant changes to lifestyle and schooling. Whilst change is an inevitable aspect of life, change can prompt a myriad of difficult feelings for children; it can prompt fear, anxiety, anger and grief. Therefore this workshop can be easily adapted post Covid-19 to explore general change.

This workshop aims to bring into the child’s awareness how they have been impacted by change, their feelings in response to this and to find ways in which they can retain a sense of security with a range of strategies designed to support their emotional development, whilst also promoting growth and resilience.
