Communicating with Children who are Distressed

Children who are distressed header

In this course, you will learn ways to communicate better with young people around emotional/mental health issues. You will also develop ways of understanding and responding to challenging situations and conversations, e.g. stress, worry, anger and sadness.

WHAT THE COURSE WILL COVER

In this training session we aim to help attendees improve their knowledge and skills around working with young people who are stressed, in distress or who find communication around how they feel difficult. The training will include theoretical underpinnings of distress, alongside a focus on giving attendees practical techniques to use with young people.

The training is led by Dr Anna Duxbury (Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Tutor on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme at Lancaster University). Anna works for the Lancashire Emotional Health in Schools Service; a service that provides training on emotional well-being to schools across Lancashire.
