Supporting Young Peoples Positive Development and Wellbeing: A Resource Building Workshop

Wellbeing is often portrayed in media and policy as equating with Health, Wealth and Happiness. Yet, anyone who works with young people knows there is much more to being well, and it doesn't look the same from one young person to the next. In this workshop, we will share useful tools for supporting positive youth development in times of change and uncertainty, and discuss what the psychology, economics, health sciences and education literature says about what it really means for young people to 'be well' today.

Date: Tuesday 16th February 2021.
Time: 9.30 to 11.30am.

Find out more about this youth positive development and wellbeing online workshop.


One of the most difficult parts of working with young people is when they become angry or upset. If you want to know what causes young people to “lose their temper” become angry or violent, what the stages are that lead up to an angry outburst, and how to deescalate the situation as quickly as possible, you need to attend this workshop.

Date: Thursday 25th February 2021.
Time: 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Find out more about this deescalation online workshop.

Sowing and Growing the Seeds of Compassion and Kindness

Research has found that compassion is a response that has ensured our survival. Putting compassion and kindness into action repeatedly with awareness, continues to ensure not only our basic biological survival, but it also optimises our physical and psychological wellbeing.

Date: Tuesday 9th March 2021.
Time: 9.30 to 11.30am.

Managing Big Emotions

With a focus on the significant adults in the lives of young people, this workshop aims to provide a basic understanding of the role of ‘big feelings’ in development. Anxiety will be the main emotion that will be explored and those attending will gain knowledge, skills and confidence in managing anxious behaviours in a way that promotes a young person’s bravery and wellbeing.

Date: Thursday 25th March 2021.
Time: 9.30 to 11.30am.

Understanding and Responding to Self Harm and Suicide in Young People

Self-harm and suicide are major issues amongst young people. There are a lot of myths about both topics that prevent many people from getting the help they need. This evidence based, best practice workshop will empower you to help a young person who is self-harming or suicidal.

Date: Tuesday 13th April 2021.
Time: 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Understanding Gender Diversity

There has been a shift in the gender landscape, how gender is expressed and experienced has changed significantly in the last five years. How we are able to respond to these changes has a direct impact on our ability to support our students or clients. Currently our gender diverse communities are facing barriers in the areas of education, income, health and well-being.

Date: Thursday 15th April 2021.
Time: 9.30am to 12.30pm.
