In this webinar, Dr Hope Christie explains what trauma is, how posttraumatic stress disorder may develop following a trauma, and what impact trauma symptoms may have on children, adolescents, and adults. Dr Christie outlines how these symptoms may impact behaviour and emotions, and how parents can help support their child and themselves. This webinar is of interest to parents who would like to learn more about trauma and the impact it can have on the individual and their family.
Did you know that parents are extremely powerful in shaping children’s early view of learning and can greatly influence their capacity to thrive academically? As parents, we are responsible for planting those early seeds that mean children enjoy learning and embrace challenges. When learning is ‘embedded into everyday life’, it shouldn’t feel onerous or stressful and in fact, should be enjoyable for the whole family. In this video, Dr Weston describes little things we can do at home that can maximise children’s chances of thriving at school.
As parents, we want the best for our children and we want to know that they are reaching their full potential. But we do have to be careful to keep a sense of balance between academic expectation or pressure and all of the other activities that keep them feeling good about themselves and their progress. There is a big difference between nudging and pushing. Find out more in this short video.

In this webinar, Laurence Hedges, Director of Art at Harrow School, will talk us through some of the ‘must see’ paintings of all time, that perhaps we can add to our viewing ‘bucket lists’ as families. More importantly, he will give us some wonderful ideas and clues as to how we can approach looking at art and, more broadly, how to promote art appreciation in children and young people.
Dr Christie Talks with Dr Marina Bazhydai: Probing the Space of the Possible – Children’s Curiosity, Wonder and Creativity
In this interview, we talk with Dr Marina Bazhydai, Director of the Active Learning Lab (ALL) at Lancaster University, about nurturing children’s sense of curiosity, wonder and creativity. We learn about her innovative and fascinating work which investigates active exploration and curiosity in very young children, find out more about the links between creativity and emotional literacy and discover how she is seeking to pinpoint the elusive concept of wonder. This is a great listen if you are keen to learn how to cultivate curiosity and innovative thinking in your child (or the children in your care).
