Risk and Resilience in teenagers: A workshop for parents

As part of our ongoing work promoting pupil well being and resilience we are hosting a talk for parents on this topic. We are delighted that Dr Bettina Hohnen, a specialist in the field of child mental health and neuropsychology, has agreed to come and deliver a talk on this subject for us. Dr Hohnen has already spoken to the senior school staff this year about the latest research into adolescent neurological development and the implications for well being. Her talk was very well received indeed so we felt it could be very informative and helpful for parents to have a tailored talk for them on this topic.

Dr Hohnen is a Clinical Psychologist with a very wide range of experience including working with families to help understand neurological development in teenagers and how this in turn can help manage stress and build resilience throughout adolescence. Further information about the work that Dr Hohnen is involved with can be found on her website linked here.

The talk will take place on 11th March at Kent College starting at 7pm, the talk will last about an hour with plenty of time set aside at the end for questions and discussion around this topic. Refreshments will be provided. If you would like to attend this talk can you please complete the booking form linked here.

If you have any questions about the talk then do not hesitate to contact me here at Kent College.


Yours faithfully
