David Coleman Seminar on Thursday 28th November “Effective Communication with Children and Teenagers”
18 October 2013

Knock Counselling Centre will host an evening with Clinical Psychologist, Broadcaster, Author and Columnist, David Coleman on Thursday 28th November at the Rest and Care Centre, Knock Shrine. The talk, “Effective Communication with Children and Teenagers”, will be followed by an extended question and answer session and will focus on helping families cope with what is arguably the most challenging job in the world: Parenting and Family Life.
David Coleman is a practising clinical psychologist, specialising in working with children, teenagers and their families. He is best known for the range of television programmes he has presented dealing with childhood struggles, teenage angst and other aspects of family life.  David is also the bestselling author of ‘Parenting is Child’s Play’ a guide to raising young children. His second book is a guide for parents of teenagers called ‘Parenting is Child’s Play: The Teenage Years’. David’s latest book is titled ‘The Thriving Family’.
Fiona McCarthy, Director of Knock Counselling Centre recognises the need for events such as this to help focus on various aspects of family life. “Our experience is that coping with family life can be difficult, even at the best of times. An event such as this one gives us an opportunity to reflect on what we do well and the things that we could do better.”
David Coleman’s RTE programme “Bullyproof” recently won an IFTA award for Best Documentary Series in February 2013.
