The Recovery College Online have launched a brand new course for young people (13-18 years) called “Thinking about Thinking”. The course explores the topic of ‘thinking’, looking at how we think, worry and about 'unhelpful' thoughts. It looks at the different types of unhelpful thoughts people can experience as well as ways that these can be managed.
If you’d like to take a look at the course, head to the Recover College e-learning site https://lms.recoverycollegeonline.co.uk/, log in and click the View Courses tab at the top of the page; you’ll find “Thinking about Thinking” within the ‘For Children and Young People’ section.
You can now also access the courses from the main website much easier than before. Click on the following link to the Courses and from here you can filter your search to explore what we have on offer.
