  • The important links between learning and emotion
  • Key factors to remember when you’re working with anxious students and young people
  • How bullying, and other traumatic events, can cause anxiety – and what to do

  • Tips on helping young people gain essential life skills
  • Important ways students can look after their own mental health and general wellbeing
  • A range of clear, practical actions that students (and tutors!) can take to start reducing their anxiety right away

Reviews for this course

4.7/5 (7 Reviews)
  1. Clinical Psychologist, Retired

    I found it 99 % excellent and need to listen again to absorb much more of the practical relevance. Thank you. Only one reservation, that you seemed to imply that you don’t directly challenge self-harm behaviours within the therapeutic sessions/relationship.
    You have masses more experience, but my view would be to see that as risky. My limited experience suggests that self-harm and suicidal urges are not mutually exclusive, or that there may be a continuum. Many years ago in Clinical Psychology I was taught to see them as distinct but now I don’t. Perhaps you could elaborate? Again, many thanks.

  2. Jane Tyrrell

    Thanks for your feedback and question. Self-harming behaviours and suicide are covered in depth on the following courses Overcoming Self-harm and How to reduce suicide risk.

  3. Lisa Ellis, Counsellor & Wellbeing manager

    Amazing! I work in a Secondary school and most of the students using the Wellbeing Service are experiencing anxiety. This approach really works. I am very excited to continue my HG journey

  4. Sandie W, Birmingham, Voluntary (charitable) HG therapist

    I did this course as part of my CPD requirement and it was an excellent form of revision, with new insights for me about working with young people …. I have usually worked with adults. Clear, precise, confidence-building. I’m looking forward to doing more HG courses via Webinar.

  5. Laurence Metayer

    This is the first time I use Human Given Webinar. I found it very informative. The structure was clear and easy to follow. This will certainly help me in my work with first year university students.

  6. HG Student

    Please thank everyone involved with the human givens approach for making coherent sense of what was, and still is for many people, a right old muddle – it brings all the relevant information about what it is to be human together into a simple whole that enables us to see ourselves and get ourselves together. In an insane age it provides more than a glimmer of human hope.

  7. Lorraine S., Westport USA

    As a hypnotherapist with plenty of experience of anxiety, I found this to be invaluable and a great addition to my work. packed full with useful guidance. thank you.

  8. Magdalena

    Great course. I’ve learned a lot. Clear, useful, encouraging.
