Building Emotional Literacy and Resilience in Children

Mental Health

What will you learn?

Resilience and emotional literacy are two of the most powerful tools in enabling young people to have good mental health and happy, successful lives. In these modules, Helen talks about how poor attachments and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can make these tools harder for young people to obtain. She takes a closer look at the different aspects of resilience in order to make targeted interventions with all your students, as well as additional support for those more at risk. You’ll also learn mindfulness techniques for combatting stress and how to support students to build resilience and emotional literacy beyond the school gate.
