Workshops for parents and teachers

We facilitate workshops for parents and teachers to help deepen understanding of TS; and provide strategies and approaches - rooted in the latest research - to support young people, families and schools.

 

***In light of current circumstances regarding the government's efforts to delay the spread of coronavirus, we have decided to postpone all of our teacher and parent workshops until further notice.  We are deeply sorry to have to take these measures but feel it is appropriate and responsible to do so, especially as public gatherings are likely to be banned in the near future.

We have every intention to deliver our workshops as soon as it is safe to do so, and will continue to be guided by government advice. We will let you know of new dates as soon as we can.  Thank you for your understanding and support.***
