Event Information: 6 PD Hours
When is the right age to start educating young children about their minds? The answer, as soon as we start educating them about their bodies. Just as we teach young children about blood, as we mend the cut knee, colds, as we wipe their noses, we can also teach them about their minds. Given that 97% of every behaviour starts with a thought, young people can grow up struggling with thoughts that determine emotional and behaviour responses. These responses, or mental health challenges, can directly affect attendance, focus and outcomes in the learning environment.
This session will:
• Build your confidence in simplifying the inevitable impact of mental illness in later years for 1 in 4 children, with a particular focus on anxiety disorders.
• Creatively explore classroom activities that encourage children to confidently understand their minds.
• Share, explore and create, methods that children can adopt in their lives in managing their ongoing mental wellbeing.
• Assist children at an early age to understand the mind needs different types of “support food” to grow.
