DECEMBER

Supporting a sensitive child

by Sarah Ashworth

Why is it that some children and young people seem to be more affected by and sensitive to the things that happen to them than others? In this webinar, Sarah will discuss some of the evidence suggesting that although some individuals are more sensitive to the negative things that happen to them in their environment, they are also more likely to benefit from positive changes in their lives than their peers. Sarah will suggest strategies for supporting sensitive children to develop resilience and fulfil their innate potential.
