    Practically every carer has been confronted by a situation when their child and young person ‘loses it’ and has a ‘meltdown’. Whether this is in the home or in the middle of a busy supermarket this workshop will help explain why this might be happening, how to avoid it in the first place, and provide some practical techniques for coping with it when it does happen.  

    A calming technique (also known as relaxation training) is any method, process, procedure, or activity that helps you to relax, attain a state of increased calmness, or otherwise reduce levels of pain, anxiety, stress, or anger.  

    Learning calming techniques allows you to take care of yourself so that you can be healthy, you can be well, you can do your job, you can help and care for others, and you can do all the things you need to and want to accomplish in a day. 

    This is a free four hour workshop for kinship carers in Scotland.


    To gain better knowledge and understanding of calming techniques and how these are relevant to the health and wellbeing of care experienced children and young people. 


    1. To improve your understanding of why calming techniques are so important to support you and the health of those in your care
    2. To be better able to support children and young people in your care and help them access appropriate services when needed
    3. To improve your understanding of fight and flight modes
