Raising Children with Confidence

Raising Children with Confidence

This free course aims to give all parents and carers the latest findings from evidence and research to explain what influences the development of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing, and why what you do makes such a difference.

The course materials are designed to raise awareness and confidence about the importance of promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in themselves and their children.

Over six two hour sessions the following topics are covered and we consider the latest research on what influences our mental health and wellbeing:

  • Promoting Wellbeing: Supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing

  • The Developing Brain: How experience shapes the brain

  • Why Love Matters: Creating positive relationships and attachments

  • Staying Connected: Listening to understand and developing empathy

  • Building Resilience: Coping with life’s ups and downs

  • Looking After Ourselves: The importance of parental wellbeing

This is a very interactive course where parents/carers are invited to share their views/opinions about the points which are discussed.
