Explaining Covid-19 to Younger Children
Supporting Older Children in Identifying Feelings
Children who have experienced any sort of uncertainty around safety in the past, are likely to be triggered by new experiences of old feelings.
Are the uncomfortable feelings you are experiencing new and unfamiliar, or are they reflecting past feelings of fear? Could you use the body template to identify where you feel fear/worry/anxiety in their body?
This is also a lovely activity using life-sized body outlines and collage materials.
Coping With Coronavirus Worries and Anxiety

A Guide to Looking After Yourself and Others
A handy booklet for adults to cope with the stress and anxiety of Covid-19.
Supporting Children Through Low Mood
“What is Low Mood?
Anyone can get Low Mood. It is the most common psychological problem. It varies from person to person and stressful or difficult things can trigger it or it can seemingly come out of nowhere. We all feel sad from time to time but usually the feeling passes. With Low Mood, these feelings of sadness just seem to go on and on and it’s hard to see a way to feel happy again.”
We have received these wonderful documents from IHeartCBT to help support children during this period of uncertainty. These documents can help identify feelings and offers activities to support children who may be struggling with Low Mood. There are 3 sessions to be completed over 4 weeks.
