Restorative Thinking and Positive Relationships: preventing and managing conflictWith COVID-19 keeping us all at home, there may be times when we feel worried and stressed and this can lead to family tension, arguments and conflict. When children see parents/carers communicating well and staying calm, it can help them cope with their own big emotions. These four short learning sequences are an introduction to restorative and relational thinking - a few techniques that can help us to better manage emotions and stay calm, and to keep communicating with each other in positive ways.
Support Your Worried ChildDuring these uncertain times we all face, perhaps you have found yourself in the challenging position as a parent or carer with a child who is now attending school remotely or on a distanced learning basis. This can be a worrying time for children and young people as well as adults. Children are missing their friends and the goal posts are constantly changing about school and how they are expected to learn. In this course, I will give you some strategies to support you in communicating about mental health and feelings. This course has been designed for parents/carers with a child in primary school and requires no previous training or knowledge.
