About this course

Please note: this seminar is taking place at the Centre of Excellence (4 – 8 Rodney Street, N1 9JH). The seminar will focus on the topic of an online programme called “Parenting Matters”.

The Anna Freud Centre is launching a year-long free programme of public seminars  and inviting all to join us as we contemplate the future of children and young people’s mental health. The Transformation Seminars is an inaugural series of free lectures open to the public to celebrate the Anna Freud’s Centre’s new building, the Kantor Centre of Excellence (N1 9JH) and ask some of the most eminent names in mental health what would most contribute to a transformation of our approach to mental health. 

To be notified when the next seminars become available to book on to, please join our training mailing list: sign up to hear about new dates.


This seminar

Face to face trials show that  the way we bring up children can be modified to improve their happiness, their  security of attachment to their parents and their social adjustment, and also their reading and school achievements. The key aspects of successful parenting are sensitive responding to the child and  the setting of clear boundaries backed up by consequences. But there are never going to be enough people to offer parents live face-to-face sessions, so an online offer needs to be developed. Here we will describe how we have gone about this and the features of an innovative new programme.

17:00 - 17:15   Registration

17:15 - 18:00   Transformation Lecture
