Description

Using positive psychology to support young people

Are you a SENCO, teacher, TA, a SEND or health professional who works with young people? Are there times when you wish you could do more to support young people? Have you ever been lost for words when working with a young person?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Supporting young people with special educational needs can be challenging and require additional support. Dealing with the social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) of young people is part and parcel of your working life, and we can make it easier. Positive psychology can give you the strategies and skills to support young people with their SEMH in your profession.
