TIS-UK is committed to supporting and developing mentally healthy cultures in schools and other organisations, informed by trauma informed practice and the power of an emotionally available adult to buffer the impact of childhood adversity. There are a range of Covid-19 support resources for parents, schools and settings on their site.
Dr Karen Treisman talks about how we need to reflect that we may currently be operating in survival modes and that the challenges of Coronavirus (Covid19) make cause past traumas to resurface 'Covid19- falling down a memory timehole'.
This Australian site provides guidance on offering mutual support through empathic listening. "Just listening for Covid-19". Connecting emotionally with others at this time is a way to feel deeply listened to. We can then begin to understand our common emotional distress and find hope and meaning in mutuality. 'Emotional distress around COVID-19 is not a 'mental illness': It is an understandable and common human experience'"
