Please click here to book.

The workshop will be run by Gareth Morewood who has 25 years experience of working in schools, and with families and young people.

Children and young people can have trouble managing their feelings and emotions and they can spill over and become challenging behaviour, both for child/young person and those caring for them.  Often children and young people react to other people’s emotions and mirror them, for example, anger.

Gareth will be giving you tips on how to be calm and in control so that you feel more safe and able to learn and have positive relationships. He will also be talking to parents and teachers and other professionals to ensure that they have tips to manage their own emotions so that everyone feels safe and calm.  The approach used is called The Low Arousal Approach.
