Early Childhood Anxiety: Working with Young Children around COVID-19

The early childhood focussed course 'Early Childhood Anxiety: Working with Young Children around COVID-19' is available to watch on-demand on www.TheIEUZone.org.au

In the past months, Australian children have been affected by drought, bushfires, floods and now a pandemic. Teachers have also been affected by these events.

The IEU has worked with psychologist Helen Tsamoulous to create a course specifically designed for teachers working with children ages 0-5 years old. 

This course covers: 

  • Recognising anxiety in young children 
  • What we learn from trauma 
  • How to talk with young children about Covid-19: what they should know and how to use narrative/stories effectively 
  • Games, strategies and activities to encourage coping and resilience 
  • Engaging with parents to address ongoing worry 
  • Focusing on the positive to be gained and reflecting on opportunities to learn from adversity 
  • Self care for teachers during times of stress and adjustment 

Only IEU members are able to access this NESA Registered course.
