Parents’ Emotional First Aid Course – April to June 2014

Between April and June 2014, a Parents’ Emotional First Aid Course was held at the ParkLife Community Room for parents who:

  • Find it hard to switch off and relax
  • Think they’re the only person that finds it difficult
  • Feel it’s hard to cope sometimes

The course started with an Introductory session, followed by a programme of six weekly sessions.

Organised by the Coxford & District Youth Project and supported by the Big Lottery Fund.

Feedback from parents who attended this course:

“Self esteem has increased, I am much more positive and able to deal with difficult situations. I have also faced ghosts from the past and now feel free of them.”

“Yes, I did and I’m proud I did this course because I was crying for help, I was feeling weak…but all I can say is that I’m feeling a completely different person, feeling so good in myself.”

“I gained so much more than I expected to gain. The course has given me so much positive tools to use. I really recommend this course to any parent.”

“A great deal of passion to change the way I approach stress, anxiety and anger. A greater understanding that I have the right to say NO. It is also OK to fail.”

“I’m dealing better with situations: not overstretching myself, having the ability to say no with confidence.”
