Family Matters Workshop - FREE Anger Management 19 May 10.30am

Family Matters workshop 

Our next Family Matters workshop will be on Wednesday 19th May at 10.30am, on the topic of Anger Management - with a specific focus on managing older children. Please do share this information with any clients who may benefit from the workshop.

This session will be run by Linda Campbell Arthur, a Specialist Clinical Psychologist who many of you will remember from her time working with us at Ruils. The workshop will focus on practical strategies for parents of older children (aged 10+) and will cover:

• recognising the causes and triggers for anger outbursts

• the positive behaviour support and low-arousal approaches to anger

• best ways to handle meltdowns

• the 'hidden' keys to reducing anger outbursts

Linda Campbell-Arthur is a Specialist Clinical Psychologist, working for the Hounslow CAMHS Neurodevelopmental Team, and in private practice. This is how she describes her approach:

'With almost 20 years' experience working as a Clinical Psychologist in hospital, corporate, school, charity and private practice settings, I have learned the importance of balancing knowledge with supporting people to design their own solutions in life. Having been a parent to a child with complex additional needs for nearly as long, I have had even more to learn about patience, perseverance, hope - and finding what works. In working with many families whose children have differently complex challenges, I know that one size never fits all. But there are numerous evidence-based techniques and strategies that can make the 'special needs' journey much easier, and sometimes, change the destination altogether.'
