Teaching recovery techniques (Children and young people aged 8 to 12)
February 6 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Teaching recovery techniques is a group designed to teach children in a step by step practical way, skills and techniques which are helpful in coping with the psychological effects of disastrous events.
In this introduction, we give a brief outline of the normal and common psychological reactions of children who have survived a disaster.
The first two sessions deal with intrusive thoughts and feelings: problems such as bad memories, nightmares, and flashbacks. The third session deals with children’s arousal: their difficulties in relaxing, concentrating, and sleeping, for example. The fourth and fifth sessions deal with avoidance: children’s fears, and difficulties in facing up to reminders of the disaster.
This free workshop is run by the Children and Young People’s arm of the Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service.
For children aged 8 to 12 years old.
