Covid 19 has brought many stressors into our lives, it has challenged us in ways we had not known before.
Save The Children have conducted a global study on over 13,000 children and families to assess the impact of the pandemic on children’s lives; children expressed many fears around health, socialisation and education, more than 8 in 10 children reported an increase in negative feelings.
This leads to the question of how we can help reduce the impact of Covid 19 on our children and young people?
In the field of trauma and attachment, we know that resilience and relationships make the most difference. This is what enables young people to heal and move on positively, in ways where they can continue to meet their potential and perhaps do even more than they would have without adversity.
All is not lost and this can be a time of great growth.
