We look forward to officially welcoming the Year 7 families and friends into our Bethany Community.

On this evening we will share a light meal together, you will have the opportunity to meet your daughters teachers, and have the opportunity to listen to our guest speaker, Dr Toula Tsovolos (Child and Adolescent psychiatrist).

Dr Tsovolos is a specialist medical doctor in psychiatry with expertise in the psychopharmacological management of childhood psychiatric disorders. Some of the areas she specialises in, is the medical treatment of Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders, and Intellectual Disability. Dr Tsovolos provides specialist treatment in the area of Depression and other mood disorders, Self-harm, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Academic Anxiety.

 

We have invited Dr Tsovolos to provide valuable insights around the developmental tasks of adolescence including neural pruning, learning to fail/ resilience,  the task of independence and the role of parenting styles in managing teen behaviour and teen outcomes.

 

We look forward to meeting you at this event.
