Schools Wellbeing

Drawing on my extensive experience I work with schools and parents to teach them the importance of resilience in dealing with bullying.

Nurturing this skill in children and young people is essential as it means they are better equipped to handle any challenges they face. Resilient children are less likely to be bullied and, in the event, they are bullied, they will be less affected by it.

For more reasons to nurture resilience in children.

Anxiety in children is currently at an all-time high. Сhildren are experiencing inordinate levels of anxiety when faced with everyday problems. Parents, often through good intentions, have been so eager to create the perfect world for their child that they denied them the opportunity to take responsibility for issues they encountered.

As a result, these children do not have the experience of overcoming problems or making mistakes and become extremely anxious when faced with the small niggly little problems that are part of growing up. In order for a child to be resilient they must have the experience of dealing with their own problems, the coping skills used for little issues are the same ones they will utilise for bigger ones when older.

Resilience isn’t about trying to make life perfect. Resilience is all about being able to bounce or adapt despite life’s challenges.It about being able to cope well no matter what life throws at you.

Our Schools Wellbeing Programme looks at not only the resilience and wellbeing of pupils but also the adults caring for them at home and school. Children’s resilience and wellbeing is strongly influenced by that of the parents, so for this reason we place as much value on the resilience and wellbeing of the parent as we do the child.

This programme aims to:

  • Raise the awareness of adults caring for and working with children
  • Educate adults about the importance of fostering resilience in themselves and children
  • Provide practical information which is grounded in research
  • Empower parents to empower children to embrace challenges with ease and confidence

As Claire has over 20 years’ experience working with families the above talks can be tailored to suit any group working in a professional capacity with children, youth and families. As such we have facilitated talks and workshops for residential social care workers, foster carers, respite services and youth organisations.
