Webinar for Families

March 4th, 2021|Events|

The cluster have put together a 4-week webinar based on anxieties, loss and coping strategies for both adults and children during the Coronavirus pandemic.  

The webinar starts on Thursday 11th March at 1:30pm and the following sessions will be for the three Thursday’s which follow at 1:30pm. Each session will be around 30 minutes long and will be delivered over zoom. The sessions will be recorded for any parents who may not be able to watch these live due to work commitments etc.
 
The webinar will be run over 4 weeks and each week we will be covering a different topic. The topics which we are covering will be anxiety, depression, managing loss and coping strategies. The sessions are all based around signs, symptoms, self-help, tools and strategies which will help families, especially during lockdowns and local restrictions. The webinar is aimed at adults, but we are covering a lot of information on children who may be suffering with their mental health too. There are tools and strategies for how parents can help their children if they are suffering from anxiety or if they are struggling from the loss of a family member whether that be through covid or managing the loss of a normal lifestyle, missing school etc.
Both Bev and Louise have both put a lot of input into the webinar so we think it will be particularly useful for families as the information is coming from professional counsellors. Each week there will be a chance for parents to ask any questions they may have relating to the webinar and we will also be offering our support to them through telephone calls if they would like some extra support. There will also be a list of resources where we can signpost people to for extra help and support if they would like it. Each session will end with some mindfulness as well.
