Hi from Warwickshire!!
Hello from Canada !
Hello everyone! Lovely to see everyone from so many different places!
If anyone has any questions they would like us to put to Kairen, just pop them in the chat here.
I try to approach my work from a solution focussed approach as a person can get too absorbed in the problem
Thankyou Kairen this is a very useful exercise
great exercise !!!!
Thanks, that’s a simple exercise but very impactful. Good idea.
What do you do if you donot know how to homeschool your child or have literacy issues as a Parent?
to call yourself an art therapist you must be qualified and registered as an art therapist as its a protected title. the website to find an art therapist is BAAT.org
Do you have some links to this mindfulness practice
some people are so used to taking their children to paid outdoor activities, they struggle or donot have the skills to undertake simple play activities at home. During the pandemic a lot of children are struggling with boredom so these tips are useful
perhaps watering plants could be link with practical biology or physics, developing vocabulary ( name of flowers, trees,, insects ) environment
that works Camilia, my parents did that and I am 55 now and did the same with my children and theres.
Mental health will be better managed through such strategies in children at present IMO
Good activity, thank you 👍🏽

Yes agree I really enjoyed today's ; can use some of this with clients
Does anyone know of any helpful resources for children who are struggling even more than usual with ‘addiction’ to on-line games? Have been asked for help by a contact and I know its a big problem for many families.
How do I get an attendance certificate?
Jo, I'm afraid I don't, but I know it's a significant problem for a lot of people
I guess parents/carers implementing clear boundaries, with consequences for violating the boundaries will be helpful? (easier said than done I know, when parents have their own work etc to do too!)
And these are exceptional times so maybe we can ease back a bit on how concerned we are about screen time?
Thanks Rebekah. Yes, have heard of a year 6 child going back to school highly anxious because they are no longer in their virtual world and interacting with online friends.
Jo Ive just done a web search for children and online game addiction and alot of choices came up. Rather than document them here it may be worth doing the same.
Yes Badri, keep an eye on the Wednesday webinar page and it will appear there.
