Brain research clearly shows that negative emotions, such as anxiety, anger and depression, place us in a state of alert - fight or flight – hindering us from learning. We all need to be comfortable, relaxed and confident to focus and learn.
This practical workshop through the use of a range of interactive activities provides participants with the means to equip children with the strategies to develop positive self-esteem, resilience and a growth mindset.
These aim to enable them to overcome obstacles, meet challenges assuredly, feel included and happy, and continually learn, developing into calm, optimistic and self-assured young people.
For parents, tutors, teachers and SSOs - pre-schoolers to year 7.
