Description

 – A Practical Guide and Resource

Published by Pavilion Publishing – Digital Resources for this book HERE.

Mental health is much more than the absence of mental illness. It also means having self-belief and the resilience to cope with stress and change. In order to teach such skills, teachers and other staff must equip themselves and their workplaces with the procedures, understanding and confidence required to monitor mental health, share strategies effectively and act appropriately if and when issues arise.

Mental Health and Wellbeing in Primary Education puts all the information you need at your fingertips – with detailed guidance on creating a culture of wellbeing, overviews of key educational challenges and transitions and early warning signs to look out for. The authors also explore how a range of common mental health difficulties that can affect learning (including anxiety, low mood, attachment difficulties, eating disorders and ADHD) are typically identified, diagnosed and managed.

Supported by a wealth of ready-made lesson plans, frames and templates, Mental Health and Wellbeing in Primary Education offers a practical, up-to-date look at how teachers and other education professionals can monitor, encourage and teach mental wellbeing among primary-age children.

Written by a child and adolescent psychiatrist, a clinical psychologist and a teacher with a special interest in mental health and emotional wellbeing, this book emphasises the need for effective and innovative communication and collaboration across the health and education sectors, for the benefit of all children. Wherever you or the children you support are on their wellbeing journey, this book will help greatly.
