Self-care for parents and professionals in the Covid-19 pandemic – developing your essential toolbox

Event Date: 8 July 2020

The final webinar of a series of four run by Dr Tina Rae.


This is the fourth of a series of webinars run by Dr Tina Rae, taking place on Wednesday 8 July 2020 14:00 - 15:30.

A recent survey undertaken by the charity Young Minds in March 2020 revealed that the current coronavirus pandemic is having a profound effect on young people with existing mental health conditions. Although they understood the need for the measures taken in response to the virus, the report says, this did not lessen the impact. Many of those who took part in the survey reported increased anxiety, problems with sleep, panic attacks or more frequent urges to self-harm.

The webinar will look at the following:

  • Understanding the need for essential self-care and the impact of the new uncertainty on us all
  • Defining the links between adult dysregulation and child dysregulation
  • Recognising the potential for secondary trauma
  • School systems to nurture all and enable effective modelling of management of anxiety and stress.
