dr d thompson tnOn Tuesday 7th June, we were fortunate to have Dr Dominique Thompson join us to deliver a webinar on the struggles faced by young people today, including the pressures of perfectionism and competitiveness within peer groups.

She addressed the nature and formation of the teen brain through the processes of both biological and social evolution, in order to explain the behaviour patterns that are often identified within this life stage. Drawing on her experiences and expertise, Dr Thompson detailed a range of signs to be aware of and strategies to support young people in coping with life in the modern world.


Parents may view her talk on the Events section of My Parent Portal (this recording will be available until 12th June).
