Staying at Home Due to Coronavirus

Published on: March 19, 2020

Based on a number of the principles covered in our Compass BUZZ level 2 and 3 training, we have created a resource around ‘staying at home’ due to the coronavirus outbreak.

This resource gives information in a child friendly, age appropriate way in order to reduce uncertainty and confusion. It also helps to guide the child in understanding their emotions and normalising however they are feeling. The resource looks at being solution focused, for example recognising a time they have gone without seeing people in the past and got through it. Finally it ends with a reframe on school being closed by looking at all of the different fun things they might be able to try out at home.
