Working In Schools
Shoalhaven Psychology Services are leading experts in presenting courses designed to allow whole school communities to thrive, bringing about authentic and sustainable change.
Our seminars are research-based and experientially validated and our speakers have worked with school populations for many years at every level, from the individual and the family, to school communities and the wider community.
Shoalhaven Psychology Services delivers viable solutions for progressive educational agendas through powerful seminars that shift individual thinking and inspire participants. Topics we engage with include:
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Sexual assault and domestic violence
- Parenting mindfully
- Raising adaptable kids
- Life, health and feeling good
- Digital age
- Hopeful futures
- Trauma informed approaches – learn more
- Mindfulness in schools – learn more
- Yoga for kids
- Parenting teen girls and teen boys
- Cool kids programme
- Social and emotional regulation programmes- for primary school boys
- Social skills and anxiety programmes for children and adolescents with ASD
- Building friendships – group program for children and adolescents
- Relationships (us and others)
- Self care for teachers and psychologists
Programs can be tailored to the needs of the school. This allows for information to be specific to issues a school may face, the expertise and knowledge already actively implemented, the variable student population, community growth and progress, and maintaining a way to respond early to social media exposure to complex concepts. For example, ‘13 reasons why’ and ‘Jasper Jones’, news reports and critical incidents.
Packages and funding
Please contact Shoalhaven Psychology Services to enquire about packages for your school.
We understand receiving assistance through funding is a way for schools to implement programs efficiently. We provide information regarding avenues and grant applications upon request as part of contractual arrangements.
To set the stage we spent our three day yearly retreat together in sharing, reflection and appreciation. At each of our retreats we start with reflection on our values- are they still relevant, are they a part of our clients journey and do we refer to them enough? Are there values we need to spend more time bringing into the company?
I spend much of my time at work speaking with clients about their experiences of trauma. These are often deeply personal conversations which involve vulnerability and working through what can be confronting core beliefs and experiences.
Often as a therapist, your work life and personal life collide with similar themes. For me, the spotlight recently shone on all things parenting and baby related.
