Free Workshop (Community Links Wellbeing & Dr Steven Walker)


Community Links Wellbeing and Dr Steven Walker of Brief Therapy Solutions are once again running the very much in demand workshops to help families better cope with children with challenging behaviour.  Challenging and disruptive behaviour of children will be the focus of a series of workshops to begin on Thursday 6th February 2020.

The workshops will be presented by Carmel Flavell from Community Links Wellbeing on behalf of Dr Steven Walker.

The workshops will be presented over a series of eight consecutive sessions, each session building on the previous.  The series of eight sessions has been aimed to assist families experiencing the impact of challenging and disruptive behaviours such as suspensions from school and aggression to family members.

The workshops targeted families that might have already sought assistance with the behaviours but there had been no change, and parents who were desperate to take part in an interactive program so that they could encourage changes within their family.

Some children might have been diagnosed with conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder (CD), or Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), while some parents were feeling as thought the challenging and disruptive behaviours controlled the household.

Families are sometimes at breaking point, not knowing where to turn or they are on a continuous search for some kind of relief or answers to help them cope.

The workshops will help parents and carers develop networks and support structures even after the workshops had ended.

The workshops are free of charge and will be conducted at Community Links Wellbeing, 1a Crimea Street, Balaclava every Thursday from 10 am – 12 midday from 6th February 2020 until 26th March 2020.  All these dates need to be attended to complete the workshops.  Each session goes for from 10 am – 12 midday.

The workshops are free of charge but a gold coin donation at each workshop for refreshments would be appreciated.

These workshops are strictly for families and not for workers.


Bookings to the series of workshops are essential.
