About this event

This session is aimed at Parents and Carers and their children.

Standing in the Gap is a UK based Early Intervention mental health charity (www.sitgap.org ) working with preschool and primary aged children. We help children and parents to manage the big emotions of fear, anxiety and anger and grief.

Our mission is to build emotional well being in children by providing tools and support to children, families and professionals.

For 2022 we have a new and updated Managing Anxiety workshop.

Last year over 300 parents and children attended our Managing Anxiety workshops. They told us:

"It gave me lots of great ideas to manage my child's anxiety"

"It explained things very well"

"It contained really practical ideas to support children with anxiety"

74% of parents rated it as excellent, 25% as good.

99% of parents would recommend it to another parent.

Building on this we wanted to improve and have rearranged the format: Now the first 20 mins is aimed at the children with the parents listening in. After that the children can relax and enjoy some colouring (we provide it) while Sam will continue to unpack the subject with the parents.

The talk is free, as we want evidence based child mental health advice to be available to all parents. However there is a cost to us running this session, if you are financially able we do ask that you make a donation https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/11701#!/DonationDetails

The session is supported by a really useful resource pack available to buy online at https://www.sitgap.org/shop or buy it in person at the workshop (we prefer card payments if possible).

If your child is anxious and its having an impact on the way you and they 'do life' please come along. Anxiety is on the rise and often as parents we don't know how to help our kids.

This workshop is suitable for adults and children. When you book tickets, please book a ticket for each person who will attend. If you are able to have someone else look after very young children that would be helpful, contact us on info@sitgap.org if you have any questions.

A couple of days before the session we will send you an email with a all the info about attending the workshop, please arrive in plenty of time to park and get a seat. It is very relaxed and we will be serving tea, coffee and cold drinks when you arrive.
