Hosted by: Strive Project and WildChild - Childreach
Facilitated by: Niki Buchan, Natural Learning, Early Childhood Consultant from Australia
With a growing concern in the rise in mental health issues in even very young children, educators are increasingly looking for support in dealing with children with diagnosed and undiagnosed issues which may lead to a range of ‘challenging behaviours’ at home and in the class. Trauma, Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, ADHD are more prevalent in society than realised and currently diagnosed, educators are in a position to make a big difference in the lives of these children.
We will explore how some mental health issues can be transferred from one generation to another, how ‘challenging behaviours’ could be the child’s way of communicating and asking for help and how adults can gently support and work towards healing these children through a combination of nature and a strong nurturing connection.
