I’m in Jersey, speaking at The Promoting Healthy Young Minds conference, with a keynote on teenage minds/brains and a breakout session on life online/screen-use. The conference is a collaboration between Mind Jersey and Victoria College.
I have books and bags to give away – not quite sure how and when but I am certainly not taking them home! five free books and two fab hessian bags! And I have postcards for everyone and posters for schools.
As usual, I have masses of resources to support my sessions. Most will be made available by the conference organisers but I’m also flagging them up below, for your convenience. If you have very little time, choose the first four links.
- General event handout: General event handout
- A link to my slideshare page, where you’ll find the Powerpoint presentations
- One very succinct and absolutely key handout: 10ThingsforSchools
- BodyBrilliant_Tips Poster
- A whole folder of handouts and printable things for schools, parents and any interested people, including some items pitched specifically at young people themselves: NicolaMorganResourcesForSchools
- For even more information, go to my Resources section HERE and choose whichever “Core Resource” you’re interested in. (Some of it is repeated in the above links.)
- You’ll also find lots of resources about Reading for Pleasure AND the chance to win a copy of Body Brilliant HERE.
- Schools, at that same link you’ll find a discount code for my teaching materials, valid until July 19th.
For your info, Body Brilliant is published this week, tackling the fascinating topic of body image. As usual, it’s based on my deep understanding of human psychology and ability to juggle and interpret wide-ranging science.
This week ends a hectic few months/year of events, with a break (for writing!) till my August 22nd Edinburgh Book Festival event on body image. I need the break, partly because I’m running out of energy – everyone does eventually if they work too hard, and I know the importance of replenishing energy levels to maintain good mental and physical health – and partly because I have a book deadline. And I have another book I want to write. And life to wrangle!
Looking forward to meeting lovely Jersey people and sharing knowledge and ideas.
