Anxiety and Worries Group intervention - Mental Health

Anxiety and Worries Group intervention - Mental Health

The interventionWho is if for?This Anxiety and Worries Group intervention is for a group of up to six children and is led by a teaching assistant. The focus age range would be 7 to 11, although older pupils would probably benefit from this intervention. Children who worry a lot would be a good focus group for this intervention. It runs for approximately 40-60 minutes, weekly for six weeks.What does it cover?This Anxiety and Worries Group intervention covers emotions, relaxation, calming down techniques and learning objectives around anxiety and worries. Children will learn about emotions during each session and will also learn relaxation and calming techniques through the ‘relaxation time’. This knowledge and these skills will help them to become more emotionally literate. The warm-up games teach a variety of skills such as co-operation, team work, taking turns, communication skills, friendship, self-esteem and confidence. The coming together of a group fosters a sense of belonging and therefore raises self-esteem. Every opportunity should be taken to promote belonging and friendship. Relaxation exercises will help children to manage their anxiety and these are visited each session.Information on Anxieties and worriesIt is important to mention that anxiety is such a big problem and affects people in different ways and at different things. Sometimes there appears to be no reason for the anxiety. This intervention is about giving children the knowledge to help themselves and to gain a little understanding about what anxiety is. It is NOT about fixing children’s problems but about supporting them through their problems. Anxiety work needs to be done by professionals who have training in counselling or psychology. An ELSA or TA can offer knowledge and support and it is important that this line is not crossed and boundaries are clear. By giving children the self-awareness, knowledge and some relaxation skills you are empowering them to help themselves cope. If you are ever worried about a child then please do refer them on to professional services so they can get the help they need.What’s included in the pack?A planning booklet with 6 session plans.Circle time rulesWarm up games for circle-timeAssessmentsEmotion wheelsEmotion wordmatCertificatesFive Star Breathing posterNEEDS to know PosterEmotion cardsNEEDS to know cardsAnxiety physical symptoms cardsWhere in your body worksheetAnxiety cardsCoping strategies posterWorry treeThought bubbles (ants)Changing those thoughts worksheetZap anxiety posterMy Five a day planELSA/Teaching Assistant notes

Lego Therapy

Lego Therapy

This is a Lego therapy resource pack which is designed to aid any practitioner to successfully deliver a course of play sessions. The core contents of the pack can be tailored to different age groups or abilities by the practitioner.It has twenty-four different pages which contain a brief introduction and then explains each team member's role and job description. It also has visual images to aid with colours, shapes and questions that could be asked to help the children engage and communicate with each other.There is also a tracker sheet which is great for following each child as they develop or it highlights if they need additional support.Lastly, the practitioner should have basic knowledge of play therapy and if not this pack could further develop their own personal skill set.I hope this pack is received well and for added usage just laminate, and most of all HAVE FUN.
