DSPL3 SENCO Conference on Anxiety

Last Friday, 16th October, Fiona and Dave attended the conference at Fanhams Hall in Ware. It was a great opportunity to hear other speakers such as  Naina Cowell and Ceri Roberts, from the Educational Psychology Team,  talking about ‘Reducing Our Own Anxiety’, Jayne Wright, PSHCE Education Adviser giving an introduction to ‘Mindfulness – Helping Children to Reduce their Anxiety’ and Dr Annie Swanepoel, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, East Herts Specialist CAMHS sharing some of  her ideas about ‘Containing Anxiety of Parents’.mum and daughter

Fiona talked about  ‘Unwritten Rules and the Effect on Feelings’ and involved everyone in writing up their feedback on Unwritten Rules for Professionals, how they might feel as a result of these, what the effects might be and what they could do about the Unwritten Rules.  This was very well received and those attending fully engaged in the activity. We’ll check and if it’s okay we’ll add the feedback to the website soon!
