Our 8 week therapeutic De-stress Toolbox Programme actively supports parents and carers to manage stress associated with caring for children and or young people. Our programme can be delivered individually or within a group setting. Often we hear phrases such as, I could pull my hair out, they are naughty, they just won’t stop, the children of today. We at TECC recognise this can be very challenging, especially when your own levels of stress are impacting upon you. You begin to lose patience, you find yourself shouting easily, you feel upset, exhausted, inadequate, worn out. Stress management for parents/carers is a supportive, therapeutic programme, where you will be actively encouraged to explore and learn how you can build a secure base to care from; one that will sustain the ups and downs and endless tasks you endure on a daily basis. Who ever said parenting/caring wasn’t stressful I think were telling untruths. De-stress toolbox will provide you with a resource bank of skills and techniques,or a parenting toolbox as we like to call it! These interventions will minimise or stop you losing control or becoming emotionally overloaded and stressed.

Children in your care will become aware of changes over the series of weeks, they will then begin to see and have the opportunity to learn from you. Your immediate emotional reaction will be better understood and regulated, equipping you therefore to deal with situations as they arise, in a more constructive manner. This will enable you to remain in control not only of your emotions, but also in control of your reactions to stressful or challenging situations. We are conditioned to respond in a certain way, which we hope at TECC will enlighten you, enthuse you and enable those you care for to learn from you in the future. Children and young people often develop similar coping strategies so if getting stressed, reacting in a inappropriate manner is something you would like to manage, the children and young people will learn to mange too.

If you would like to join us on one of our programmes or even know a group who would like to join us, please do not hesitate to contact us at our Centre in Birmingham. Our programmes can be provided at our centre or on site and includes lots of free resources, including: laughter, coping strategies and techniques, that you can take with you in your role as a parent/carer.
