This course will increase awareness and understanding of anxiety and help to gain practical solutions to support young people.

Mental health amongst young people was rising pre-pandemic and during lockdown and subsequently most young people and adults experience some form of anxiety.

Participants will become familiar with the Polyvagal Theory and the work of Dr Stephen Podges and trauma and the work of Dr Bessel van der Volk and how trauma affects PTSD and OCD.  Health will be considered and how anxiety can increase levels of cortisol, blood sugar levels and diabetes and heart disease.  The training will look at the increase in anxiety, explore pre-, during and post-pandemic reasons for the increase.
