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.
- For more information, please email email@example.com

The workshop extends concepts covered in our Introductory Data Analysis Workshop to include mixed-effects models (useful for repeated measures), and generalised linear models (GLMs, useful for analysing counts and binary responses).
This two-day workshop consists of seminars and computer labs using the statistical software R
. The workshop is open to staff and students.
All participants are expected to have good working knowledge of linear models, and a basic understanding of using the statistical software R.
For an introduction to data analysis with R, we highly recommend attending our Introductory Data Analysis Workshop in the next semester before participating in the advanced workshop.

“Putting the Development Back into T&D” – Practical Tips and a smattering of success stories.
Session Overview :
Diane Edwards arrived at the Ports of Auckland back in 2011 at a time when leadership was in crisis. She “inherited” staff who had been considered low potential and set about changing the leadership and therefore the culture of the Ports. Eight years on, all of her direct reports from that era have not only moved into the high potential category but have all gone on to be General Managers in their own right, leading high performing teams.
