Live Online – Join Richard Brook on Wednesday 14th April 2021 for this live online workshop via Zoom. The impact of Covid-19 on young people means it’s now more important than ever to know how to connect with, help and motivate them. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout the day. All you need is a quiet place to watch, a computer or tablet and a strong internet signal, the rest is easy. Simply book your place as normal, and we will email you details of how to join the Zoom workshop.

NB The training will be recorded and made available for 2 weeks afterwards in case anyone experiences technical difficulties on the day.

Why take this course

Tutor Richard Brook brings a practical and humorous approach to the bewildering array of models currently directed at front-line workers.

The programme is varied and intensive, yet lively with a strong focus on gaining skills. It clarifies what healthy teenage development looks like, why things can go wrong and the best ways to help young people overcome obstacles and begin to create lives for themselves that work well.

Richard also shows how, by working with the ‘givens’ of human nature, and ensuring that sound knowledge of how people really function is applied intelligently to teenagers, you can speed up progress, reduce anti-social behaviour and teen depression, and bring young people real benefits.

At the end of the day you will find yourself more empowered to respond effectively to each individual’s needs, temperament and learning style, whilst avoiding the emotional pitfalls of working in stressful situations.
