Anxiety and Resilience Course for parents in Hertfordshire - Bounce Forward

Anxiety and Resilience Course for parents in Hertfordshire

A three-session on-line course for parents  


Children and young people will feel anxious and worried from time to time. Anxiety is a normal or usual response to uncertainty. The way we respond as parents, and deal with our own anxiety plays a significant part in building our children’s capacity to develop resilience.

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly generated lots of uncertainty and changed the way we go about our everyday lives. You may be feeling more worried than usual as you think about the impact on you and your family. Perhaps you are in the midst of a growing cycle of worry and concern that you’d like to unravel. You are not on your own.

This programme is delivered as three, 60-minute online sessions, to explore anxiety in a way that is practical, supportive and will help parents to explore strategies they can try at home. 

The funded courses through Hertfordshire County Council are now full. Please head over to our page here, and register your place on one of our open courses. We look forward to seeing you there. Thanks!
