Great presenter!

Content delivered confidently with a good mix of interactive sessions.

I highly recommend.

Robbie Ridler

NCS National Contract Manager, Learn By Design

Brilliant session!

Very accessible but also taught a lot. I love psychology and found it very interesting, but also changed how I think about some of the conflict situations that I have been in. This training will definitely change my practice.

If you attend this training it will give you a broader understanding of why teenagers act like they do and will help you feel more equipped to deal with them.

Fantastic session! Thank you.

Rhiane Groome

Youth Worker

Great training! Thank you! 🙂

It was great to have the opportunity to explore the different areas of teen psychology and relating it to the work that we do. I also loved the use of mixed media to break up the presentation – really emphasised certain areas.

This is great interesting training, well worth the time which will definitely help to develop your work with young people.

Emma Wightman

Senior Youth Worker

Learning about the teen brain and why teenagers may react in the way they do is vital in our role when working with young people. I would tell other professionals that it is well worth attending this training as you will empathise and learn how to manage teen behaviour.

Thanks Anika!

Kevin Brown

Senior Youth Worker

Really interesting – I enjoyed learning about how the teen brain works.

I leant knew ways to deal with conflict and how it is linked to psychological theories and experiments.It’s given me things to think about and reflect on how I challenge young people.

I would advise anyone, both parents and professionals to attend the course as it gives a real insight into how young people work and what happens through this developmental stage in their life.

This training stimulated some much needed reflection and discussion among the staff team and added to our knowledge and skill set needed in assessing, understanding & responding to young people’s behaviour.

The training was really interesting and it was really useful to gain knowledge on teen psychology.

If someone was not sure about attending this training I would tell them it is engaging and helpful in understanding the way teenagers’ brains work.

Robert Murphy

Really good training with some thought provoking stuff!

Loved the videos & discussion techniques & also the packs are colourful with pictures.

You will learn a lot – it’s interesting to know about young people but also to assess yourself as an individual and professional.
