How to help children thrive (Live Online Workshop)
7th October 2021 @ 09:30 - 16:00 BSTGBP145
Join family therapist and best-selling author Miriam Chachamu for her inspiring workshop, you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and benefit from her extensive experience. The day is held via Zoom.
Life is harder than normal for many children at the moment so it’s really important that we know how we can best support children’s emotional health and wellbeing.
Drawing on new research about children’s brain development, Miriam uses her extensive experience of working with families and children to give you a wealth of practical steps, insights and effective communication skills that you can implement straight away. You will learn how to work effectively with children, help them deal with difficult emotions and reduce emotional outbursts, guide them to learn from past mistakes, build healthy self-esteem and provide them with life-long skills including effective communication, positive behaviour, taking responsibility and understanding their emotions.
