Wellness Evening for Parents
Many thanks to the very large number of parents/carers who attended the ‘Wellness Fortnight - Parent event‘ recently here at the college. We were delighted to welcome Emma Balfour Educational Psychologist and Stuart Melvin Primary Mental Health Specialist CAMHS, who presented a fascinating insight into some key issues for young people and the adults who care for them.
The presentation covered a range of topics including;
The struggle for independence and identity
Setting limits and boundaries
Communication and listening
The evening was peppered with lively discussion between parents, sharing thoughts and experiences about ‘what is going on in the teenage brain’. A copy of the information as promised on the evening is available below: Understanding Adolescence.
