Service providers and educators who work directly with children and families are invited to attend ‘No Scaredy Cats’, a training opportunity aimed at reducing anxiety and building resilience skills in 2-12 year old children.
The training will be subsidized as part of the “One Stop Shop” mental health and well-being project funding recently received from the State Government Minister for Education.
The course will take place at the New School of Arts Neighbourhood House on Tuesday 3rd December 2019 from 8:30am-4:00pm. It is available at a subsidised rate of $40 per person.
Practitioners will learn how to assist parents in managing children’s worries. Discussion will cover how misguided policies are making parents and children more anxious. There will be education regarding how the brain impacts fear and anxiety. Facilitators will teach helpful verbal techniques and phrases used to help diffuse anxiety producing situations.
Prompt registration is encouraged as numbers are limited and will close on the 1/11/2019. To register or for further inquiry, email [email protected] or phone 6640 3800.
