Explore the real reasons behind most challenging behaviour, and what you can do about it, with family therapist and best-selling author Miriam Chachamu
Live Online – Join us on Tues 24th November 2020 for this live online workshop – as many children and families have been badly affected by Covid 19 we’re offering 20% OFF our usual workshop price. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout the day – all you need is a quiet place to watch, a computer or tablet and strong internet signal, the rest is easy: simply book your place as normal and we will email you details of how to join the Zoom workshop nearer the time.
NB The training will be recorded and made available for 2 weeks afterwards – in case anyone experiences technical difficulties on the day.
