Join us for this fascinating series of free short online talks on working with troubled children.

Each talk is given by one of the team of experienced lecturers and practitioners on our innovative degree programme Therapeutic Communication and Therapeutic Organisations.

Tuesday 16 June, 4pm to 5.30pm
Why won’t they behave? Why can’t they learn?

This talk will introduce you to some of the less obvious factors at work with children who are disruptive or difficult to manage, or who are inhibited in or resistant to learning. This deeper understanding can help us find more productive strategies to help.
