BUILDING RESILIENCE: USING KEY TOOLS, TECHNIQUES AND INTERVENTIONS WITH CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS (Positive Psychology, Stress Management, CBT, Mindfulness, The Big Empathy Drawing)

With two eminent authors and practitioners: Dr Tina Rae and Dr Margot Sunderland

This day offers delegates a wealth of take-away practical evidence-based strategies to teach children and teenagers ways to become stable under stress and to bounce back and keep going when things go wrong in their lives. The practical skills explored on the day will help children and teenagers to better manage anxiety and stress through sensory awareness; regulation of emotions, attention and acceptance of thoughts and feelings, and understanding of what is going on in their brains and bodies when they feel stress/distress).

Presenters will also explain how to teach children and teenagers about the brain biochemistry of positive and negative emotions. This involves knowing how to trigger positive arousal chemicals through health-healing behaviours, when they are feeling anxious, angry or depressed. In this way children and teenagers feel far more in control of their lives, their mood states and their relationship with self and others. In modern day society it is vital that child professionals have these interventions as part of their tool kit. Trauma and loss, pressures from school, social media and relationships can seem overwhelming to children and teenagers, often leading to health-harming behaviours and a deterioration in their ability to learn, to relate well to others and to enjoy life.

The strategies, explored on this conference day will also help children and teenagers to build self-esteem, assertiveness, problem-solving skills and a reflective as opposed to reactive approach to life, all shown to improve mental health & wellbeing. Remarkably the ability to ‘think positive’ in a variety of ways also impacts on long-term physical health and longevity (Ong et al, 2017)

Dr Tina Rae is author of a great many books relevant to this conference. These include: Building Positive Thinking Habits: Increasing Self-Confidence & Resilience in Young People through CBT, The Essential Guide to Mindfulness with Young People, The Essential Guide to Positive Psychology with Young People, Bouncing Back & Coping with Change: Building Emotional and Social Resilience in Young People Aged 9-14, Building Positive Thinking Habits: Increasing Self-Confidence and Resilience in Young People through CBT.

Dr Margot Sunderland’s relevant publications for the day include The Science of Parenting, Draw on Your Emotions, The Emotion Cards and Conversations that Matter.
