Event description
Dr Suzanne Zeedyk will explore how we can support children and young people in this time of uncertainty and change related to COVID19.

About this Event

The COVID pandemic has brought uncertainty and change to all our lives. This webinar will explore why change can feel so tough, and why children and young people don’t always ‘bounce back’. What practical steps can adults take to support children and young people continuing to struggle emotionally or behaviourally? How can we make sense of why some children seem to have coped with change better than others? Most importantly, what role have protective factors, especially relationships, played?

Understanding the power of connection helps us to devise better solutions when challenges emerge.

Key learning

  • Why does uncertainty & change tend to be hard for human beings?
  • Why do attuned relationships generate a sense of emotional safety?
  • What practical steps can adults take to help children and young people struggling with uncertainty & change?
  • How can you tell if a child or young person is struggling emotionally or behaviourally.

Facilitator

Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk is a research scientist fascinated by babies’ innate capacity to connect. Since 1993, she has been based at the University of Dundee (Scotland), within the School of Psychology. Her academic career began in the USA, where she completed her PhD at Yale University.

In 2011, Suzanne stepped away from a full-time academic post in order to establish an independent training enterprise. Its aim is to help the public understand all that science has discovered about the importance of emotional connection for human health and happiness. Approximately 40,000 people have now attended her speaking events, and she reaches over 50,000 people a week on social media.

Suzanne works internationally with organisations who are keen to think more deeply about fostering connection, compassion and resilience. In 2014, Suzanne broadened her public reach even further by founding the organization connected baby. She and her team work to help parents and professionals make practical use of the science of connection.

Suzanne’s core aspiration continues to be strengthening awareness of the decisions we take about caring for our children — because those choices are integrally connected to our vision for the kind of society we wish to build.
