COMING SOON: Amanda Peddle
It’s not rocket science – it’s BRAIN SCIENCE!
Talking about feelings without getting the ‘ump’
Having worked with children and families for over 20 years, Amanda Peddle uses neuroscience and neuroeducation to shape her practice and the books she has written for children. With her passion, her extensive knowledge and training, she has begun to create a series about TAM; how he can process his emotions and that his fear of his FEELINGS is normal.
In this webinar, Amanda aims to support early years educators to help children understand and accept rather than be fearful of FEELING. As we move into an era of increased awareness of our emotional well-being and the impact on ourselves and society as a whole, it becomes clear that more ways of encouraging children to manage their emotional state in a much more effective and understandable way are needed. Teaching early years educators and then how to support children with the ‘how and why’ of emotions can remove stigma and calm some of the worry around reactions. By sharing a learning experience like a story they can develop their understanding of why we as a species respond to stimulus the way we do.
Join us on 12th February to begin your own journey!
