Emotional First Aid

Parents Emotional First Aid

This is not a parenting course, but focuses on a Parents’ own emotional wellbeing; helping them to identify their own early warning signs of emotional distress and develop their own sense of positive emotional health and wellbeing. The course will offer an overview of mental health and well-being in relation to being a Parent.

In a report from the Office of National Statistics a parent is quoted as saying “A parent is only as happy as their saddest child.”

It is our belief that likewise, a child’s emotional well-being and resilience is reflection of that modelled by their parents. If we can promote a greater sense of positive emotional wellbeing with the parents, it may create a healthier emotional environment within the family.

  • Identify early signs of emotional distress and the solutions we use to manage it
  • Recognise and understand your own emotional needs

  • Explore the risks we pose to ourselves

  • Develop a support network with other parents
