Pastoral Wellbeing Professional Learning Day
Presenter: Dr Wayne Warburton, Senior Lecturer, Deputy Director, Children and Families Research Centre, Macquarie University
TARGET AUDIENCE: This day is designed to meet the needs of a variety of school based staff, Leadership, psychologists, counsellors, classroom teacher etc. It will be of interest to all those working with parents and students.
In this day of training we will examine two issues of relevance to professionals who work with school children – screens and personality problems.
We will first look at the impact of screen use in 3 key areas – overuse, pornography/sexualised media, and youth gambling.
- New findings on screen addiction will be presented, particularly in relation to impacts on sleep, physical health, emotional health and healthy neural development.
- We will also examine issues around online pornography and its impacts on sexual behaviour, look at the impact of sexualised content on attitudes and beliefs.
- And take a look at the prevalence, identification of, and management of, youth gambling.
We will finish the day by discussing how to manage children with developing personality issues, and look at these issues from a new ‘hybrid’ understanding of how such personality problems reflect and impact basic areas of the child’s functioning.
