The Science Behind Mental Fitness
We teach primary children about senses, healthy bodies, skeletons, digestive & circulatory system to help them understand how to stay physically fit but why don’t we teach them how to stay Mentally Fit?
This course looks at the science behind our emotions and why we act and feel in certain situations and gives us techniques to use, for both the children we teach and ourselves, to achieve Mental Fitness. Children’s Mental Health education needs as much attention, if not more, than the statutory National Curriculum. Stress, anxiety and other mental health issues are big barriers to both teaching and learning. This course aims to support you in creating a healthy mind ready to learn and teach.
