GDST Talks: ‘Helping your child understand Covid-19′

We are delighted to offer our first ‘GDST Talks’ event with Dr Deborah Woodman, on Thursday 26 November at 6pm.

We would like to invite you to ‘Helping your child understand Covid-19: how to support their mental health and development in a world post Covid’, a free online presentation, which will take place via Zoom on Thursday 26 November at 6pm.

This is the first GDST Talks event, bringing you a series of online presentations from distinguished experts who will share their experience and advice on the pressing issues of the day. By hosting the talks online, we are excited to reach more parents and alumnae than ever before from across our GDST family and we are very proud to be presenting some truly impressive and accomplished speakers.

Our first speaker, on Thursday 26 November at 6pm, is Dr Deborah Woodman consultant Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Lead for Psychology at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’. She will be talking about the impact that lockdown and its ongoing uncertainties have had on young people’s mental health and development. So much of the normal, healthy adolescent experience relies on interaction and dealing with challenges in person: how does this translate into a socially distanced and primarily online experience? Dr Woodman will be sharing her expertise, and offering advice for parents around how to best support their child, as well as sharing ideas on how they, too, can cope with the difficulties of being a parent during a pandemic. This event is suitable for parents with children in Years 7 to 13.

Please note that although there are a limited number of tickets for this event, we will be recording it and making it available to GDST parents afterwards.
