Our Parent Seminar programme continues during the summer term, with a presentation taking place on the topic of Adolescent Mental Health, Anxiety and Wellbeing. The seminar will be delivered by Dr. Pooky Knightsmith from In Our Hands on Wednesday 26th May 2021 from 6.30 p.m. until 8.00 p.m. via Zoom.
An internationally respected face of child and adolescent mental health, Pooky is a prolific keynote speaker, lecturer, trainer and author who develops and shares practical, evidence-informed approaches to promoting mental health in children. Pooky has a PhD in child mental health from the Institute of Psychiatry, is the author of seven books and was previously the chair of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition. She also has personal experience of the impact of mental health difficulties, and of raising children.
She has designed this seminar with the pandemic in mind to explore some simple, practical ideas that can be used to respond to feelings of anxiety or low mood, including both proactive and reactive strategies. These are all ideas that can also be used to promote general wellbeing and would be helpful for any child (or adult) to learn. The seminars Pooky has previously led for Trinity School parents and staff have been extremely well received with her practical and factually evidenced information being incredibly helpful.
