We’ve published an e workbook for children and young people on dealing with uncertainty.  

Dealing with the covid-19 pandemic has been challenging for all of us, especially young people, and we wanted to create a resource that young people could use to help them cope.

The online booklet has lots of helpful information, tools and activities that young people can use at any time when they’re struggling with uncertainty, not just during the pandemic.

Paula Arriazu, a Counselling Psychologist who specialises in helping people deal with trauma at the Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service said:

“Going into the first national lockdown in March 2020 left many of us feeling lost, worried and confused. At GHWS, we had to rethink how to connect with young people remotely and we also had to refocus our interventions to truly address what children and young people (and all of us!) were finding most difficult: dealing with uncertainty. This booklet is the result of this thinking, the interventions that followed and the feedback of people that took part in them. It offers information, examples and tools to understand and manage uncertainty- give it a go and let us know what you think! We hope it will be helpful for children and young people struggling with uncertainty, through and beyond the COVID19 Pandemic.”
