Guidance and support for families, including carers, parents and their children

 

Tozers Family Team recognise the pressures that many families have suffered as a result of lockdown restrictions, and the concerns and worries that families have about the Coronavirus pandemic.

 

What guidance is there for my family?

Kings College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and Maudsley Charity have produced eight short films which showcase helpful advice to support families struggling under the Coronavirus pandemic, which we believe are a good resource for all. The Families Under Pressure series offers parenting tips and advice on topics including: keeping positive and motivated, building your child’s self-confidence and trust in you, promoting better behaviour, how to limit conflict, and using sanctions carefully.

What guidance is there for my children?

A recent report published by UNICEF looks at the impact of Coronavirus and lockdown on children and young people’s lives across the United Kingdom. The report covers protection from violence, abuse and neglect; loss of education; children’s health and access to health services; and children’s mental health.

All of our lives have been turned upside down by lockdown and COVID-19, but the impact of loss of education, and relationship with family and friends, should not be underestimated. There are very many understandable concerns raised by parents and professionals about the state of children’s mental health because of these impacts. Trying to make sense of the new life that we are all leading even as adults is complicated, but for a child it must be overwhelming.

Our Family Team has looked into the latest support and guidance, including this recent report published by UNICEF.
