Looking for new ways to support the parents at your school?
If this is what the parents at your school are saying, you're in the right place.
It’s normal for all children to have big thoughts and feelings, but if the parents in your school are strung out and lost on how to best help their child with anxiety, depression or raging emotions, evidence-based somatic strategies can help them foster emotional regulation at home, and at school.
Learn the 3-step model to teach emotional regulation using play, curiosity and compassion.
With a trauma-informed approach, up-to-date neuroscience research on children's mental health and the need for emotions to be addressed and expressed on a visceral level, parents will walk away from this workshop with practical solutions they can put in place straight away to help their child regulate their nervous system and feel safe with their big thoughts and feelings.
Preventing and Easing Anxiety and Depression
With Bronte Spicer
How this workshop will help your parents build emotional regulation in your students.
If you have parents who are worried about their child's mental health and looking for practical tools to help them, this workshop gives them:
Practical steps with real-life stories to stop losing it at their child and become emotionally available through feelings of hurt, unworthiness, failure, shame, loneliness, anxiety, anger, grief and sadness.
Confidence to know how to handle any problem that their child throws them like separation anxiety, fighting with their siblings or wanting to numb out on screens all the time.
What do raging emotions, depression and anxiety look like?
The parents and carers at your school might be struggling if their child is:
Melting down, crying and not cooperating after school or refusing to get ready for school in the mornings
Always wanting screen time, unmotivated and wanting to be left alone
Talking down about themselves, overwhelmed with their negative thoughts
Explosive and aggressive towards their siblings or other family members
Anxious or worried about school, friends and 'getting it right' all the time
Disruptive, acting out; and not following requests

"This is the first thing I've found that I would consider a cure for anxiety. We've been able to make a peaceful home; I don't feel like I need to escape home anymore. I am calmer. My mind isn't crazy all the time. I am at peace. I never thought, genetically that was a part of me. "
