We are delighted to announce the next two GDST Talks events in March.
On Thursday 4 March, Dr Nihara Krause will be talking about The Science of Motivation – Helping Your Children To Keep Going
With the cancellation of exams and the extended lockdown, many young people are experiencing a certain lethargy, a lack of desire to study, and a feeling of ‘what’s the point?’ Whilst we are all doing our best to ‘keep on keeping on’, it can be a challenge to maintain motivation and engagement. How can we help our children to focus on the future and to keep on going? Dr Nihara Krause is a highly experienced and award-winning Consultant Clinical Psychologist who specialises in adolescent and adult mental health. She has contributed to government discussion on mental health, is the founder of teenage mental health charity stem4 and has created four globally successful mental health apps. In this session, Dr Krause will be explaining the science behind motivation and sharing tips and advice to help parents support their children through the coming months.
This talk will take place on Thursday 4 March at 6pm via Zoom, and is suitable for parents with children in Years 7-13. To book your place, please click here
