The Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service will run sessions to teach children and young people recovery techniques in the New Year.

‘Teaching Recovery Techniques’ (TRT) groups have been used all over the world to help children and young people learn skills to recover from trauma.  The Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service Children and Young People’s Team have been using the sessions to teach children, and young people skills and techniques, which they can use to cope with the psychological effects of distressing events.

Among other things, the sessions will address intrusive thoughts and feelings, problems such as bad memories, nightmares, and flashbacks, and children’s fears and difficulties in facing reminders of distressing events.

The sessions for 6 to 8 year olds will take place every Wednesday from 8 January to 12 February 2020.

The sessions for 8 to 12 year olds will take place every Thursday from 9 January to 13 February 2020.

Two parent sessions will also be offered alongside each group, to enable parents to learn about the techniques their children have been practicing in the group sessions.

All sessions will be held at the Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service. To book call 020 8637 6279 or email
