David Coleman Talk - Effective Communication with Children

Good communication is key to healthy connections between you and your children, making it easier to guide, teach, understand, support and even discipline. Breakdown in communication can leave parents feeling frustrated, desperate and hopeless, or worried about deteriorating relationships.

But it’s never too late to make real changes, and very often small changes can have a big impact. 

In this evening presentation Clinical Psychologist David Coleman will guide us through the fundamentals of effective communication, translating psychological theories into common sense advice on how we can best respond to our children, and offering practical guidance for time-strapped, exhausted and stressed parents on how to raise resilient and emotionally intelligent children.

You may be familiar with David’s straightforward, no-jargon approach through his television programmes, books, columns in the Irish Independent or regular contributions to ‘Today with Sean O’Rourke’ on RTE Radio 1.

 A parent himself David is open and honest about his own struggles as a parent and how from time to time he fails to ‘take his own advice’.  His warm, empathic and often humorous approach to the challenging job of parenting is one of the many reasons he is so well received:

David will address:
· Making parenting work when you work outside the home
· How to raise resilient and emotionally intelligent children
· Communicating through conflict / setting boundaries,
· The importance of listening to understand
· Helping children understand and regulate emotions
· Supporting a child / teen with anxiety

Tickets prices
Early bird (until 18/4/2018) €30
Full price (after 18/4/2018) €35

Blankets of Hope 2018

Over the past few years, the children of Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile have taken part in the "blankets of hope" programme to create lovely blankets which we gave to people in our Cork hospitals as a comforter as they underwent chemo.

We have started again in 2018, and have made great progress as you can see! This year we are asking the 6th class knitters to help 3rd to 5th class. They will go into the classes for an hour for 4 weeks after Easter in the hope that each of the classes will create their own blanket.

So dust off the knitting needles and make a start if you can over Easter. 20 stitches, 20 rows – to end up as a square.
Huge thanks to all the kids who have been busy knitting and the muinteoirí who are very supportive of this programme
