Family Survival Guide for COVID-19: Surfing the (Coronavirus) Anxiety Wave

 

A new kit designed to help families cope with anxiety and mental wellbeing during these difficult times.

It includes Fact Sheets and Activity Sheets co-authored by Dr Anne-Marie Coughlin (Child & Family Psychologist) and John Waters (Educator and Author from Piscean Publishing.

As a clinical psychologist Dr Coughlin has been working with children and families to navigate the very stressful and unsettling events related to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

As questions and fears were mounting, she decided to put together a support pack to assist families. Together with John Walters, previously a school principal and now with Piscean Publishing, we have created a package called "The Family Survival guide for COVID-19: Surfing the Coronavirus Anxiety Wave."

This is an easy to implement family survival guide offering simple, practical suggestions for families to take control at a time when a sense of control seems very distant. It is intended for families to work together on the activities to promote a sense of cohesion and direction as well as building unity and resilience.
