Social media and mental health

For anyone wanting to understand more about young people’s use of social media and the impact this may have on their mental health and wellbeing, this workshop introduces some practical considerations. As the first generation to grow up using technology as a primary means of socialisation and communication, young people today face new pressures and challenges that those working with and supporting them would benefit from understanding, in order to offer effective support.

Connecting with Coaching in the Classroom

The classroom can be an intimidating and daunting place for many children, with self-imposed limiting beliefs playing a significant part. Left unchallenged, limiting beliefs about learning can undermine aspiration and lead to low academic attainment. In this workshop, Ron shares the effective, low-cost method of bringing coaching into the classroom, enabling classroom coaching cultures. Learn a coach-styled way of speaking and behaving, which will significantly impact pupils’ behaviour and speech and consequently, their learning.

The Wellbeing Within

In contrast to wellbeing, resilience and confidence being something to build or fix, Vicky will guide us in uncovering the innate wellbeing, resilience and confidence that always exists within us all. Identifying what can take us away from our core of innate wellbeing, can enable us to gain more insight around children and ourselves. Understanding wellbeing in this way can help to harmonise relationships with others and build a more peaceful relationship towards ourselves.
