Developing Resilient Children

Course details

Duration: Half day

Who should attend: Early years practitioners.

What will I learn

According to the 2020 research project into the impact of COVID, 14.4% of children aged 5-10 years are estimated to have a probable mental health disorder.

Just as our physical health can fluctuate, so can our mental and emotional well-being. We live in an ever changing world that demands us to be resilient, emotionally stable and flexible in our thinking. These are not skills that we are simply born with, they require development and are a constant work of progress throughout our whole lives. This isn’t always an easy task for adults, so for a child under the age of five, this is a huge ask!

This course will examine the key factors affecting children’s mental and emotional well-being. You will learn about relevant theories and supportive strategies to build emotionally enabling environments, in your setting.
