In March 2019 we hosted the workshop 'Understanding and Supporting your child with Anxiety', in association with DSPL7 and Vista St Albans. The speakers presented on topics including 'What is anxiety', 'When is anxiety a problem', 'Spotting the signs' and 'Supporting your child'. They shared some suggestions and resources for parents, which are illustrated below.

The Stress Bucket acts as a visual reminder to manage levels of stress and aim for effective ways to cope with stress factors. Imagine your body as the vessel and realise that if you take on too much then the system could simply overflow.

 

 

Use The Calm Jar as a visual aid and discuss how it can be used as a meditation tool when feeling upset, worried or stressed. When shaken the whirling glitter can represent whirling thoughts and emotions, which calm and settle after a little while.

Use My Network (designed as a folding page) to talk with your child about building a network of people that they know they can turn to if they need help. Counting around the fingers on the hand, think of family and friends and some professionals (such as teachers at school) who can act as 5 points of contact and support. Understanding that there is a strong network can help to tackle feelings of stress and anxiety.
