Mindfulness Course for Children

Does your child struggle with anxiety or stress? Would you like to support them to learn skills to enhance their wellbeing?

  • The Psychology Centre is offering Pause Breathe Smile (PBS), a group for children (aged 8-11 years) who struggle with stress and anxiety to develop skills of mindfulness.  PBS is an evidence-based program, developed by the Mental Health Foundation, found to improve focus and attention, enhance self-awareness and reduce stress.
  • The group will run from 4 – 5pm, starting Wednesday 23 October for 8 weeks at the Psychology Centre, University of Canterbury. It requires both child and parent/caregiver to attend and learn together.  The total cost of the program is $200.

Psychology Week 2016

21 – 27 November 2016

Last year I joined the Canterbury Branch of the New Zealand Psychological Society as their student representative, because I love creating opportunities for students (and myself) to hear about the different paths psychology can take them.

Because psychology as a field is so diverse, fascinating and often misunderstood, we thought it would be cool to have a public event as part of the annual Psychology Week. At this event you can hear different psychologists speak about their roles in the Christchurch community. We will have psychologist representatives from the health, justice, corrections, educational, organisational and other sectors attend.

Date: Wednesday, 23 November 2016

Time: 5:30pm – 8.00pm

Location: University of Canterbury (specific location to be emailed to attendees). Please RSVP here
