STRATEGIES FOR CREATING CALMER HAPPIER CHILDREN

Sinead Doherty, PlayTherapist, and co-clinical director of Play Therapy Northern Ireland presents a workshop in which you as a parent will learn how to help your children re-organise and re-balance their autonomic nervous system at the biological/survival level after being overwhelmed following a stressful event.

Sinead will introduce participants on how to use games, play activities and art, integrated with the fundamentals of basic neuroscience to facilitate the release and completion of thwarted stress responses, to elicit the capacity for healthy social engagement.

By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital social, emotional and academic growth.

Who is the workshop for?
The material is useful for parents who want to understand their child’s behaviour and to nurture strategies they can use at home.

Maximum number of places available: 20
