A FOCUS ON LOCUS OF CONTROL
Research studies over the last 20 years have shown the importance of Increasing Externality of Locus of Control.
Children who have a high external locus of control have higher rates of anxiety and depressive symptoms, and those that have a higher internal locus of control have a greater ability to manage adversity and stress.
Children can be supported to develop an internal locus of control with techniques for how to give children more control over their lives.
This workshop on anxiety is based on brain studies which focus on the role of the prefrontal middle cortex and the amygdala.
It allows parents and carers to understand where fear and anxiety originates, how children’s minds work; and how they can get control over different parts of their brains.
By understanding the role of the amygdala as the child’s protector, teachers and parents can help children to manage their emotional reactions to adverse events.
These sessions, run by Ruming Yang, will equip you to assist your child in managing everyday anxieties. You won’t want to miss this.
