I apologise for sending a second newsletter so soon (I generally send no more than 4 per YEAR!), but a number of you have pointed out that the details for the professional development were omitted from the previous newsletter!
So here is the information:
Sally-Anne McCormack (clinical psychologist, media consultant, former teacher) is the author of “Stomp Out The ANTs”. ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) are annoying creatures that trouble everyone! Sally-Anne refers to the analogy of the ANTs – everyone gets them, they are hard to get rid of, and we often don’t notice them until there is a huge pile of black pests hiding all of the good things (thoughts) underneath them. She also describes some popular strategies to “stomp” out the ANTs, and ways of helping yourself to prevent future infestations!
Dealing with ANTs works incredibly well with adults, but this presentation is geared towards helping children and teens realise that they have ANTs in their heads, it is not their fault, and Sally-Anne offers strategies on how to get rid of the little creatures! And due to her strong belief that prevention is better than cure, you will learn some empowering information to share with your children/students.
