Stress and anxiety affect us all and are completely normal reactions that we will all experience from time to time. For some people however, this can be experienced as more intense, for longer periods of time, be disproportionate to the circumstances and can have a significant impact on day to day functioning. Children and adolescents experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety and related difficulties such as managing obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours often struggle to cope with the demands of everyday life.

It is important that those who are involved with caring for young people experiencing these difficulties are able to recognise and make sense of their difficulties in order that they can respond in a way that is supportive.

    Target Audience:

    This workshop is aimed at providing those involved with the care of young people experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety and difficulties managing obsessive thoughts/compulsive behaviours with key information about these difficulties. We will also provide outline guidance as to how best to support a young person experiencing such challenges.

    The target audience includes families, friends and carers of young people experiencing stress, anxiety and obsessive compulsive difficulties. In addition attendees may include those working within, and offering support in a range of settings. These settings may include professional, as well as personal contexts including:

  • Education (e.g. teachers, SENCos, college tutors, mentors, special needs assistants),

  • Health (GPs, Paediatric workers, Health Visitors, School Nurses),

  • Social Care (social workers, family support workers, children’s centre workers),

  • Community & Voluntary services.
