Drop in Sessions with our Educationals Psychologists

East Renfrewshire Educational Psychology Service is delivering three online one-hour parents’ sessions in March. The next session will take place on Wednesday 10th March 6:30-7:30pm and Thursday 11th March 4pm -5pm 

The aim of these will be to explore how Covid has affected how children and young people think, feel and behave, and to discuss ways that you can support your child through the current challenges.

The sessions will refer to our Healthier minds website and resources (https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/er/healthierminds) and will involve input from partners across East Renfrewshire who support children and young people’s mental wellbeing.

Click here if you are interested in attending either of the sessions and an email will be sent with how to join the session.
