Developing Children’s Resilience & Positive Mental Health

Dates: Wednesday 22nd January 2020

Time: 7.00pm – 8.30pm

What’s it all about? In this ever pressured world, the demands of our children continue to increase and often children can struggle to cope with the strains and stresses of managing their emotions. All parents want their children to be happy and able to cope with whatever life throws at them, however it isn’t that easy. This workshop will provide you with some ideas, tips and techniques to try at home with your children and to look at ways in which as parents we can help develop and encourage resilience in our children. Some of the areas we will discuss will include how to boost confidence, self-esteem and develop responsibility, setting age appropriate expectations to help develop resilience. Resilient thinking—changing habits to think more resiliently, managing difficult feelings and behaviours, communication techniques to build resilience, developing competence, character and coping strategies and, finally, looking after yourself.
