Mental Health – Anxiety in Adolescence
3rd October @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
In a culture with higher pressures to succeed, 24/7 online presence, global instability and a constant bad news cycle, young people are increasingly struggling to know how to cope. As professionals we are seeing an increasing rise in disclosures around anxiety and can be unsure how best to respond and support.
Anxiety in Adolescence is a 3-hour course that not only highlights the pressures that young people are facing today, but also key methods of support, including school-wide/organisation-wide and individual approaches, free downloadable resources and the skills to identify the signs of anxiety disorders. The course also covers the area of exam related anxiety and gives practical advice and measures schools and those supporting young people can put in place to manage this time of year more effectively.
All delegates receive a training pack, certificate of attendance and 10% off all Youthscape resources. The course will include the following:
- Breakdown of the main types of anxiety disorder
- Physical and psychological Indicators of anxiety
- Catastrophising and self-doubt
- Methods of support including encouraging self-care
Plus a range of free downloadable worksheets and recommended resources.
The course costs £45 and runs 10-1pm. Drinks and light refreshments included.
