NEW: Cognative Behaviour Therapy

As part of our ever-expanding #educational offer we can now deliver Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and De-escalation Training to schools. This will educate staff and teacher on this #important issue we find on a regular basis in this day and age.

?Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – 1 Day Course for Schools

A recent study, involving researchers from Oxford, in collaboration with the Universities of Bath, Cardiff, and Exeter, suggests that #anxiety prevention programmes given to Year 5 pupils in school significantly reduce anxiety symptoms. Moreover, it highlights that such lessons benefit all children, regardless of their initial anxiety level.

Lessons in #CBT involve teaching children how to identify and manage their emotions, replacing their anxious thoughts with more helpful ways of thinking. It also involves developing their problem-solving skills to better confront and cope with anxiety-provoking situations and events.

The research says anxiety in children is very common and impairs their day-to-day lives as well as increasing the risk of severe mental health disorders in adulthood. It mentions previous research that suggests that by the age of 16, 10 percent of children are affected by an anxiety disorder.
