The PowerPoint is a great resources you can use to help children develop strategies for coping with anxiety – and in particular will guide them through the steps of creating their own worry monster that they can ‘give’ their worries to.   There are also reminders that talking to a trusted adult, or ChildLine, are also good ways to share worries and concerns and will help children feel less anxious and happier.
