Seminars

Understanding children and youth from the inside out.

Anxiety. Aggression. Apathy. Bullying.

Why are we seeing these challenges more and more? What can we do about them?
Every professional I know that works with children is asking these questions.

As individuals, we have more power to effectively respond to these challenges than we sometimes believe. But, in order to create the conditions for change, we must first understand the emotional drivers underlying the surface behaviours that we all see in our daily work with individual children.

I regularly provide seminars to educators and helping professionals in half-day, full-day and multi-day formats. My goal is to help participants understand the why, so that they can then better understand how to effectively respond to challenging individual behaviours and group dynamics in learning environments of all kinds.

The course was absolutely fascinating! I learned so much and enjoyed every minute of it. The material was illuminating and also very practical.

If only everyone could take a workshop with Hannah, I think the world would be a better place of understanding, individuality and growth. I can’t wait to apply what I’ve learned!

Hannah has a way of blowing your mind, and also showing you that you can do it. The “aha” moments are amazing! The course was such a great reminder of the importance of relationship and how desperately our teens need us!
