Anxiety and Trauma - Impacts of Covid (Online) [EVENING SESSION]

Specialist topics

Are you concerned about the impact of Covid on your child? 

Many carers have raised concern about the impact of Covid on the children in their care and their development. This session aims to address these concerns.

The three most important factors in mitigating the effects of anxiety and depression are: relationships, relationships, relationships!

In this session, Nathan Wallis discusses the fact that both genes and environment play a part in the likelihood of a child experiencing a level of anxiety that causes concern. There are many risk and resiliency factors that can be looked at when considering the appropriate way to respond to maximise a child’s positive outcomes.  If a child suffers a trauma or has several risk factors (e.g living with domestic violence) you can mitigate the negative effects of this by increasing a child’s resiliency factors.
