  • Who is this course suitable for?

    This event is for parents or teachers who have young people experiencing anxiety and who either feel unable to attend school or are not able to fully engage when they do attend.

  • What does this course aim to teach?

    This event provides evidence-based tools to help young people cope when they are experiencing distress, whilst reducing school refusal.
