The Adult Education Hub
The Adult Education Hub is continuing to offer parents/carers online short courses to support young people struggling with anxiety and needing to build resiIience.
There is one course remaining this summer term:
Supporting a Teenager with Anxiety – Monday 27 June and 4 July from 7 – 8.30pm
Growing numbers of children are experiencing anxiety – which can affect their mood, feelings about being at school, relationships and behaviour. We want to make it right for them, but it can be hard for a parent/carer to know how to respond and provide effective support.
The Adult Education Hub is continuing its established online courses: Supporting a Young Person with Anxiety, and Building a Young Person’s Resilience. Both consider what children need from when anxiety takes hold, and offer practical strategies to help the young person manage anxious thinking and build their self-esteem.
Here is what some parents have said:
- “Listened to our concerns and gave us some great advice and tools.”
- “I found it really helpful – and reassuring.”
- “Gave practical tips as well as reassurance. I feel I’m better able to support my child with their anxiety.”
Courses [2 x 90 minute online sessions] are free to parents on a low income/means-tested benefits. A fee of £15 applies otherwise.
Parents/carers are asked to enrol and can do this online https://adulteducation.brighton-hove.gov.uk/course-category/children-family-wellbeing/ or email AEH@brighton-hove.gov.uk
Courses are free to Brighton & Hove residents aged 19+ who are living on a low income.
