In this evening seminar Peadar will discuss common and current topics and concerns regarding the emotional health of children and young people. From anxiety to peer pressure, from parenting to mentoring, risk taking behaviour to building resilience. The talk aims to offer parents, trainers and coaches an overview of and guidance to promote awareness and understanding of child and adolescent emotional health.

Children’s Seminar (12- 16yr olds) – Monday 20th May @ 7.30pm

Building on the seminar for adults, this talk is designed for children and adolescents. With their developmental needs and peer and societal pressures in mind, Peadar will discuss a range of topics in a supportive and positive way. Understanding normal worries and anxiety, developing resilience to peer pressure, and self-care in new situations will all be discussed in a way to boost confidence and self-care behaviours.
