About The Webinar

From Virtual to Real Life: Rebuilding Pupils’ Emotional Wellbeing After Lockdown

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, teachers and teaching assistants with practical advice and guidance on how they can support children to re-establish and build relationships in real life following their period of enforced dependence on the online world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that many children have turned to the online world in order to fill the void left by a lack of in-person social and emotional interaction with their peers. Whether through remote education, online gaming or social media, children may be reliant on these relationships and the psychological impact of returning to school may not be fully understood.

In this webinar Dr Aaron Balick, experienced psychotherapist, consultant and international speaker, will explore what impact the extended period of online social interaction may have had on children and how schools can help support their transition back into school life.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how the digital world facilitates relationships in particular ways and why children and young people can become dependent upon it.

  • Recognising how children’s need for recognition fuels their online activity, particularly through social networks and dating apps.

  • Recognising how relationships are often formed, both offline and online, and the role technology is having on extending these beyond normal encounters.

  • Identifying the challenges that schools may face with children returning to school and how to prepare children for increased emotional complexity.

  • Recognising the practical steps that teachers can take to help support children’s re-adjustment to school life, looking after themselves and the role parents have to play.
