From the flyer:

RESPONDING TO EARLY ADOLESCENT LEARNERS (REAL) GROUP SPOTLIGHT SEMINAR II

Psychological Immunisation - Keeping healthy adolescents healthy.

'For so long we have been so preoccupied with remediating problems that we have not turned our attention to prevention nearly enough. We brush our teeth to stop decay, we bend our knees to lift heavy objects and spare our back, we eat a balanced diet to have a healthy body ' but what do we do to establish and maintain excellent mental health? I'm excited that we are now starting to build an answer to that question."

Come and hear award winning clinical psychologist Dr Tom Nehmy an expert in the resilience, wellbeing and mental health of early adolescents. Dr Nehmy has worked extensively with students, parents, teachers and counsellors to build healthy students psychological skills and resilience.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.
