Practical strategies for students and parents

Tatachilla is pleased to partner with Adelaide-based clinical child and adolescent Psychologist, Kirrilie Smout.  Kirrilie visits Tatachilla regularly to present to our students and parents on practical strategies to support teenagers to feel calm, confident and co-operate with those around them.

In her practice, Developing Minds, there are 15 child and adolescent psychologists working to support parents in supporting their kids and teens.  The practice sends out a fortnightly article to parents, carers and professionals, on a variety of topics, and we will be providing a link to those articles on our website as they are sent to us. We commend to you this resource.
