Our GDST Talks series continued earlier this month, as we welcomed Dr Nihara Krause to talk on the subject of ‘The Science of Motivation – Helping Your Children To Keep Going’ on Thursday 4 March. We are delighted to share the recording of the talk, here.
We are excited to be joined by Emma Gleadhill next Thursday 18 March, when she talks to us about ‘Getting Your Daughter Through Puberty’ (tickets available here) and are delighted to release details of the next talk to follow in the series.
On Wednesday 24 March, we are looking forward to welcoming Dr Sinéad Devine-French to Northampton High, who will talk on the subject of ‘The Psychology of Sleep’.
Sleep allows for essential emotional and physical maintenance and regulation, and has a direct impact on our capacity to learn, perform, interact and thrive. The proliferation of screens, be they for zoom meetings, home learning or lockdown boxsets – combined with pandemic-related worry, has understandably taken its toll on our ability to drift off. Since our sleep patterns and needs change across our life span, it’s safe to say that everyone – children, teens, parents and grandparents – would benefit from better sleep habits. Dr Devine-French will be explaining what good sleep looks like, sharing a toolkit to encourage parents to help themselves and their children to achieve healthier bedtime routines for more robust wellbeing.
This event is suitable for parents with children in Years 3-13, and to book your place, please click here. As always, we would also welcome your feedback on the topics you’d be interested in seeing covered by future GDST Talks.
