EARLY STAGE 1, STAGE 1: MANAGING ANXIETY DURING CHALLENGING TIMES



In the past months, Australian students have been affected by drought, bushfires, floods and now a pandemic. Staff have also been affected by these events.

 

The IEU has worked with psychologist Helen Tsamoulous to create a course specifically designed for teachers working with students in early Stage 1 and Stage 1.

 

This course will cover:

· Understanding how anxiety presents in K-2 students

· The Thinking-Feeling-Behaviour cycle and recognising and then assisting studnets with    managing unhelpful thoughts

· Discussing facts about Covid-19 in a child friendly way by visualisign and verbalising and   using cartoons

· Strength based activities to encourage coping and resilience

· The changing face of Stage 1 education in uncertain times and helping parents help children

· Talking about balance, consistency and structure

· Reflecting on positive growth experiences

· Self care for teachers/support staff during times of stress and adjustment.

Completing Early Stage 1, Stage 1: Managing Anxiety during Challenging Times will contribute 2 hours of NESA registered PD addressing 1.1.2, 4.4.2 and 7.3.2 from the  Australian Professional Standards towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
