You and your colleagues are invited to take part in Solent NHS Trust’s innovative Anxiety Management Workshop.
The training is aimed at staff supporting young people in Secondary, Further & Higher Education (although we welcome staff from the Primary Years setting, please be aware the Discovery Guide to Anxiety is written for the older age group).
We believe our training will leave you well-equipped to support and prepare students prior to stressful periods in the academic calendar.
The one day workshop will provide you with the following:
• an understanding of what causes anxiety: highlighting the range of anxiety-provoking situations young people may face
• an understanding of the effects of anxiety:
- · physical – the symptoms anxiety can have on the body in the short and long term
- · mental – the negative thoughts anxiety can generate in a young person’s mind, and how this can affect them and their understanding of the world around them
- · behaviour – how anxiety can affect a person’s behaviour & what we may observe in our daily interactions with young people
• information on how to access NHS services for young people experiencing more severe forms of anxiety.
You will also workshop how to deliver anxiety management sessions to young people in your organisation
All delegates will receive 250x copies of the Discovery Guide to Anxietyto use with Students; Staff; Colleagues & Parents

Feedback from previous Anxiety Management workshops:
· “I learned how to present information about stress and anxiety in a straightforward way to various audiences (students, staff and parents) and to offer tips for how to manage anxiety symptoms”
· “I learned how to break down the idea of anxiety management to others both pupils and staff. Although I already knew a lot of the information about anxiety – I didn’t really know how to bring it all together in a coordinated form.”
· “I feel better equipped to help anxious pupils.”
· “As Head of year for the 5th year (Year 11) in my school I was particularly concerned with the level of anxiety amongst pupils in my year group. A significant part of their final study skills session is now allocated to ‘Anxiety Management’ using information/ skills from this course and the booklet.”
· “Students have benefitted from the excellent booklets”
* Full details of feedback from previous courses are available on request.

There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that if we invest in promoting well-being and building up resilience in children and young people they will achieve far greater outcomes. If you are interested in discovering more on this we recommend the following report by the Children & Young People’s Mental Health Coalition: http://www.cypmhc.org.uk/media/common/uploads/Final_pdf.pdf
