Due to the amount of activities JIGSAW is now running there will be no capacity for late bookings to any of our events. This is due to the additional admin it requires and our workload. All events are advertised in a timely manner but please be aware they close to bookings when full OR about 3-5 days prior to the event. If you purchase a ticket to any event and are unable to attend, do not offer this to other members on social media. Instead contact the JIGSAW Thornbury events email or phone us at the base. All bookings require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice to cancel with a full refund. This allows us time to fill your space. Cancellations with less than 48 hours’ notice will be non-refundable. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Project 5 – Parent Training at Olveston School Y6 Transition
June 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until June 29, 2021
A JIGSAW Project 5 virtual Parent Training course – Parenting Anxious Minds and Building Resilience for Transition. These particular sessions for your school will focus on family connections and how to support your anxious child with their next steps towards high school.
3 sessions of up to 1.5 hours, each from 7:00-8:30pm, where all include an opportunity to discuss the topic areas:
Session 1: Tuesday 15th June – Enabling talk around anxiety and worries with your child
Session 2: Tuesday 22nd June – Calming the anxious mind – what works
Session 3: Tuesday 29th June – Strengthening supportive connections and looking towards next steps.
Talking about stress and anxiety is hard at the best of times. Engaging in an event online may make you run and hide. However, making the first steps to acknowledging, recognising and communicating our own pressures as a parent will also enable us to build and support our children’s physical and mental wellness. We need to look honestly at our own resilience and build this alongside our children in their social and emotional development. Resilience is the key to becoming confident at planning and managing a way forward and through stressful experiences. Being resilient means you are able to:
- identify your strengths to use against stressful experiences
- problem solve and plan to bring about change
- know how we should think, feel and behave
- identify and focus on feelings of happiness
- develop assertive behaviours and confidence
- bounce back from challenges or deal with traumatic events
- connect to others for support and trust
I do hope you will join me for these sessions. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate in speaking with your school or with JIGSAW Thornbury direct: firstname.lastname@example.org. ZOOM can be accessed by your smart phone, tablet or a computer. Again, please let us know if there are any access difficulties for you or your family.
To book your FREE place, please complete the booking ticket with your details. Joining details including the Zoom invitation will be sent to you by e-mail a few days before the training start date.
