‘UNDERSTANDING OUR DEVELOPING CHILDREN’
– a workshop led by Janey Downshire at Waterlane Workshops, Stroud
Autumn can be an unsettling time for children if they are starting a new school or university or even embarking on a career. For many, such changes trigger anxiety and this workshop aims to show parents how to be interactive in a proactive way…
Janey Downshire, author of Teenagers Translated, qualified counsellor and teacher, is running this workshop which focusses on understanding our developing children. As a specialist in teenage development and emotional literacy, Janey has worked to design a unique range of courses which distil the most current research in psychology, neuroscience and biochemistry into practical strategies for parents, children and teachers.
The workshop aims to provide parents with an added insight to their children’s behaviour and is suitable for all parents of children aged 10 to mid 20s. It encourages a proactive approach to child care by focusing on how to prevent potentional problems. Based on evidence from brain science, psychology and child development, Janey reveals accessible and practical strategies to promote a stable and resilient child. Parents will develop an understanding of how their
interactions can help a child learn the ability to regulate strong emotions and stress and avoid falling prey to the more worrying mental heath issues such as anxiety disorders, panic attacks, eating disorders, self harming and depression.
The workshop aims to provide parents with a raised awareness of what works with teenagers and why, and over the course of the day parents will develop an increased understanding of normal teenage behaviour, the underlying emotional state that drives problem behaviours and how to positively influence this.
The workshop runs from 9:30am–3:30pm and costs £95 per place, to include a two course lunch, refreshments and a copy of Janey’s book.
