According to Meyers and Cowie (2021), the closure of schools and limited access to friendship groups can result in acute anxiety and stress in young people. At a time where important events like graduations and birthday parties are cancelled and daily life revolves around a single household, it is the very young children who are among the most affected. Long-term studies of the impact on children following natural disasters and famines have shown that consequences of such events can be significant and lasting (Yoshikawa et al., 2020). It is crucial that we are doing all we can to combat these effects now so that our children can be supported to navigate the short-term impacts of the pandemic before they become long-lasting negative impacts.
Learning Outcomes for this Workshop include:
· Understand the key psychological impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on children and teachers themselves
