What is the difference between a workshop and a seminar?
Workshops are designed for larger groups of 10+ participants. Seminars are smaller and more intimate in nature, with 2-10 participants. They therefore allow us to 'zoom in' and explore personal challenges and individual experiences a little deeper, as well as build a compassionate network of support.
Who are they for?
Workshops and seminars are generally designed for parents/carers and for professionals in the school setting. Receiving support in a group setting offers an opportunity for you to not only hear that others share similar challenges, but also to learn new strategies that they might have found to be successful, in a non-judgmental, supportive setting.
What will they look like?
Workshops and seminars typically take place in schools, however alternative arrangements can be made. They can last from an hour to half a day, depending on your needs and on the material covered. Informal, practical and interactive, the content is based on the latest theories and practices in child development and neuroscience. Participants will leave with a new toolkit of strategies and ideas to implement positive changes and improve their child's or pupils' overall well-being. The aim is also to equip you with new empowering knowledge that will give you the confidence to experiment with new ways of parenting/teaching.
What are examples of topics offered?
