Bounce Forward Parent Anxiety and Resilience Course
Please see below information relating to a free course for parents and carers:
Oldham Council has comissioned Bounce Forward to deliver two Parent Anxiety and Resilience courses. Children and young people will feel anxious and worried from time to time. Anxiety is a normal or usual response to uncertainty. The way we respond as parents, and deal with our own anxiety plays a significant part in building our children's capacity to develop resilience.
Session 1: What is anxiety?
This session explores anxiety to ask what it is, where it comes from and why it’s essential for human beings to experience anxiety.
Session 2: How we talk about anxiety
This session is a cognitive exploration of anxiety. Exploring what can get in the way of how we deal with our children’s anxiety. Thinking about our own responses and the way we model dealing with stress, concerns and worries. The way we communicate through verbal and non-verbal responses.
Session 3: Helping my child deal with anxiety
Practical tips on strategies that can be used to help you help your children understand and deal with anxiety.
Option 1: 1st, 8th and 15th February Tuesday's, 6 - 7pm
Option 2: 4th, 11th and 18th May Friday's, 10 - 11am
