Introduction to this section

This section has been written in the style of directly addressing the young person. This is so it can be used by the young person, or more often, to give the carer words and tools to use in supporting their young person.

This section has been developed by Psychologist Dr Angela Simpson (BCom/BA, PGDipPsych, DPsych (Health), MAPS) and focuses on practical skills that can help reduce the need for young people to rely on more harmful ways of managing their intense emotions.
