There's been a fair bit of activity in and around Kid Psychology lately.
The impact of Covid-19 hit without warning and turned everything we knew upside down. Thankfully the Federal Government recognised that psychologists needed to keep providing mental health support in one of the most challenging situations in a century and enabled universal Telehealth to attract a medicare rebate! Winning! Although things seem to be calming down, Kid Psychology has the capability to offer Telehealth appointments until September 30. For now, a return to Face-to-Face is happening from next week and sessions are available for assessment and support.

I've also been busy putting my thoughts down on (cyber)paper in relation to the wellbeing of all of our Year 12 students who are juggling the stress of the HSC and the stress of doing the HSC in the midst of a global pandemic. You can find these musings on the Dymocks Tutoring Insta page. I've written a few blogs for them lately and also create well-being modules to support all students tackling the teenage years while studying. Check them out.
I've also partnered with Bradbury Preschool to deliver short, weekly messages over the next 5 weeks to parents who may have been anxious about what their kids were missing by not going to preschool (or school). Turns out, being at home in a global pandemic is more educational than you think!
Week One's lesson on resilience is here:
If you would like to use these lessons for your own early childhood setting, or want me to write about mental health and well-being, please email email@example.com

I'll be back in the next week or so with some other news and linkage to what Kid Psychology is up to in the clinic and in the community.
Look after each other. Wash your hands. Physically distance. Bump elbows. Stay safe.
