Thriving After Covid - Psychological Steps of Recovery for Teachers and Pupils

Thriving After Covid:

Psychological Steps of Recovery

7th September 2021 - 7pm 

For Primary & Post Primary Teachers

and SNAs

One Hour Webinar

According to Meyers and Cowie (2021), the closure of schools and limited access to friendship groups can result in acute anxiety and stress in young people. At a time where important events like graduations and birthday parties are cancelled and daily life revolves around a single household, it is the very young children who are among the most affected.

Loades & colleagues (2020) highlight that social isolation can impact young children’s developing social skills. Lockdowns have resulted in reduced social interaction, increased stress and less physical activity. Long-term studies of the impact on children following natural disasters and famines have shown that consequences of such events can be significant and lasting (Yoshikawa et al., 2020). Effects such as lower educational attainment, increased health problems and difficulties with emotional regulation and overall wellness are all potential impacts that could be felt long after the COVID-19 virus has been controlled. This is why it is crucial that we are doing all we can to combat these effects now so that our children can be supported to navigate the short-term impacts of the pandemic before they become long-lasting negative impacts.

Learning Outcomes from this webinar:

  • Understand the key psychological impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on children and teachers themselves 
  • Appreciate the immediate and long-term impact of Covid-related anxiety on a child and teacher
  • Understand the importance of supporting children who have experienced Covid-related emotional issues during or post-lockdown
  • Be introduced to effective strategies that can safely and easily be implemented for children

This webinar will delve a little into evidence based research about how the environments we create and the experiences we provide for young children and their families, affect not just the developing brain, but many other physiological systems.
