Practical ideas to help children and young people
to explore their feelings and manage their emotions.

Children’s stress levels are at an all-time high, yet many pupils struggle to talk about their feelings, or find ways to calm down and feel safe. This course explores how mindfulness and resilience techniques can help children deal with stress, and gives practical ideas that staff can use in whole-class settings, with groups and on a 1:1 basis.

Colleagues will work through techniques that will help children understand their feelings, self-regulate and calm themselves, leading to higher levels of self-esteem, and improved memory and concentration.

Workshop content:

  • Help pupils understand stress and how to explore their feelings
  • Learn simple mediations and mindfulness techniques to help pupils cope with change, anxiety, bullying etc.
  • Help pupils to develop coping strategies and ways to manage stress and difficult feelings
  • Encouraging pupils to become ‘present’ and grounded.

Sticking Up for a Friend

– Peer Support Systems and Bystander Behaviour

Thursday 2nd November 2017

Billingshurst Community & Conference Centre

Cost: £60 per person or two places (from the same organisation) for only £90!

Practical ideas to help children and young people
when they are faced with a bullying situation

When children and young people are confronted with bullying behaviour we know it can be a confusing and upsetting experience.  They may be a witness to bullying or may be experiencing the bullying themselves.  We also know that receiving support from their peers makes a big difference to their experience at school. The 2015/16 Childline Report noted that young people who witness bullying “…can feel frustrated and find it hard to know how to get help.”

Workshop content: 

  • Explore peer support systems in primary and secondary settings
  • Help you to think about what additional support could be provided in your setting
  • Understand bystander behaviour and how to encourage people to stick up for each other
  • Provide practical strategies to improve resilience and bounce back when faced with bullying behaviour
