Unpacking and Supporting Childhood Anxiety Webinar February 2024

In our one-hour webinar, we will examine the causes of childhood anxiety before focusing on strategies to build resilience and emotional regulation so that children have the tools to respond to challenging life events.

Managing Emotions and Challenging Behaviour Webinar March 2024

Many children present with challenging behaviours that sometimes leave us stumped and wondering what on earth has happened! This workshop will help you to identify some of reasons why your child may be presenting with challenging behaviours and will provide you with some strategies to help them to manage their feelings. Sensory Regulation refers to the nervous systems ability to regulate, organise and prioritize incoming sensory information, inhibiting irrelevant  information and prioritising relevant information. This allows a child to respond appropriately and effectively to sensory stimuli in their environment and thus achieve and sustain an appropriate level of arousal, i.e. to focus and engage effectively. Difficulty with Sensory Regulation can impact on emotion regulation. Emotion regulation is our ability to understand and manage how we feel and how we respond to situations in every day life. It impacts our interactions with others and with our environments. The inability to self-regulate can lead to behaviours such as anger/aggression, withdrawal or anxiety. As a result, children who struggle to maintain emotional regulation may have difficulties forming relationships, learning at school, transitioning between tasks and environments, and more. It is important for children to learn the skill of regulating their emotions so that they can thrive in their day-to-day lives.
