Counselling for non-counsellors


Date: April 19, 2018 


Why you should attend? The Good Childhood report published in September 2016 highlighted the increase in emotional and mental health issues experienced by young people. As a member of the schools' pastoral team, it is important that all staff can help the young people in their care. It will not make delegates a qualified counsellor, but it will provide strategies such as how to listen effectively and how to help young people choose better options in their lives.
