Project 5: Building Family Resilience in Anxious Minds (private SEND cluster group)

June 10, 2020 @ 7:45 pm - 9:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:45 pm on Wednesday, repeating until June 24, 2020

Free – £10.00

A JIGSAW Project 5 Virtual Parent Training course for the Almondsbury Schools SEND Cluster group – 3 sessions of up to 1.5 hours each from 7.45pm – where all include an opportunity to discuss the topic areas.
Session 1 – Wednesday 10 June – Let’s talk about anxiety
Session 2 – Wednesday 17 June – Calming the anxious mind – what works
Session 3 – Wednesday 24 June – The importance of escaping the circle of anxiety

Talking about stress and anxiety is hard at the best of times. Engaging in an event with strangers may make you run and hide. However, making the first steps to acknowledging and recognising where we are currently with pressures and physical and mental wellness, will be your first steps towards being a more resilient and confident parent and family. We need to look honestly at our own resilience and build this alongside our children in their social and emotional development. If you wish to learn and discuss how anxiety and stress affects us all and how to develop a more resilient family then join JIGSAW for these sessions.

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 assertvie behaviours and confidence
  • bounce back from challenges or deal with traumatic events
  • connect to others for support and trust

Booking your FREE place is essential – you will be sent an e-mail with a login link for Zoom prior to the event!

The course is for all three training sessions and will include a free download of a selection of pages from the Project 5 Journal.

A reprint of the Project 5 journal will be available soon and you can pre-order your copy now for £10 (normal price £13.99)
