Children and Stress

Supporting Children Coping with Stress and Anxiety.

Many children experience high levels of stress at some stage during their childhood. Stress may be caused by family problems, social or peer issues such as bullying, or school pressures, such as preparing for tests and exams.

Over time high levels of stress can lead to anxiety and emotional difficulties. Children vary in their ability to cope with stress, but all children can be supported in developing more effective stress management strategies and greater resilience. This course provides a practical guide for teachers and education staff supporting children and young people who are experiencing stress.All tutors are experienced therapists who have training and experience in working with children.

I completed the course as part of my CPD and am really pleased I chose it. It gave me a totally fresh perspective on some issues that has been very helpful in school, and included plenty of useful practial ideas too. The course is easy-to-follow and I had a really nice tutor, who was always happy to answer my questions. I'm applying for new roles in school now and I think having this additional certificate has been a great addition to my cv.
