Anxiety is a part of life and some anxiety is essential because it helps us to act to protect ourselves and ensure our safety.  However, anxiety can become problematic when it is out of proportion to the threat in the environment, causes distress and interferes with children and young people’s everyday lives.  When this occurs it is often considered to be an ‘anxiety disorder’.  Anxiety disorders are extremely common and often start in childhood or adolescence.  They can have a significant and ongoing impact on mental health and well-being.  Anxiety disorders can affect family, school and social life, leisure activities and educational achievement.

Teachers have a role to play in supporting children and adolescents to understand anxiety as part of the new RSHE curriculum, as well as needing to feel confident that they can recognise the impact it may have on the children they work with.  This webinar brings together teachers from a range of settings to consider how they are supporting pupils in the school to understand anxiety.  Event attendees will have access not just to the event itself but to supporting materials and resources to help them embed effective practice in their schools.

About the ‘Pedagogy in practice’ series

Chartered College of Teaching are delighted to have teamed up with ACAMH to present a FREE online training series, ‘Pedagogy in practice’, exclusively for teachers and school leaders.

This is the first in a series of FREE online events exclusively for teachers and school leaders, and offer insights into best practice in supporting children and adolescents building on the latest evidence base. They are brought to you as part of an exciting new partnership between The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) and the Chartered College of Teaching, two charities who are dedicated to supporting teachers to make a difference to the mental wellbeing of children and young people.

These sessions are designed to help close the knowledge gap in a range of topics that now form part of the statutory Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) curriculum.  We think it is important to help equip teachers with knowledge in areas that may be less familiar to them and to help them consider how they might most effectively deliver these topics to children and adolescents as part of the curriculum.

Pedagogy is the method and practice of teaching, especially as an academic subject or theoretical concept. This series gives teachers an incredible opportunity to take part in interactive expert webinars looking at how to teach key topics in school. The first of these session looks at Anxiety, something that pupils, and us, at some point, have all experienced.  Please note that the event is for teachers and school leaders.

These sessions will build on the previous ‘Ask the Expert’ webinars hosted by ACAMH, and delegates for this session are strongly encouraged to watch these, and in particular the topic of Anxiety.  All of these sessions plus a host of other free resources for teachers can be found on ACAMH’s Teacher Hub.
