SCHOOLS TO BENEFIT FROM R.T.E. PSYCHOLOGIST TEENAGE TALK
Clinical psychologist and presenter of RTE’s critically acclaimed series ‘Families in Trouble’, David Coleman will present a special talk about teenagers at the Cork Marts premises in Corrin, Fermoy on Thursday, March 31 at 8pm.
Siobhan Enright, one of the committee members said that the Loreto Secondary School, St.Colman’s College and Colaiste an Chraoibhin came together in a joint venture and set up sub committees: “It is great that the event is being sponsored by Mellerick’s Pharmacy which means that any money raised will be distributed equally amongst the three schools,” Siobhan told The Avondhu.
Orla Mellerick added that David’s costs would be covered by Mellericks Optician, Mellerick’s Pharmacy and Fermoy Medical Hall.
“We wanted to sponsor this as we wished to do something to support the local community. Tickets are €15 and all money raised from that will go directly to the three schools. I think that parents will get a lot out of David’s talk, as he is very positive about managing teenagers. He has a vast amount of excellent advice and he will be giving plenty tips and strategies for modern parenting.”
Coleman gives lectures and workshops to groups all around the country on topics ranging from parenting to communication.
Speaking in person to thousands over the last year, David enjoys the engagement with a live audience and his entertaining style is always acknowledged. He is also a bestselling author of Parenting is Child’s Play, a guide to raising young children.
His latest book published in January 2010, is a guide for parents of teenagers called Parenting is Childs play -The Teenage Years.
David will give a 60 minute talk at the Fermoy event followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers. Tickets are €15 and can be purchased from either of the three schools, Mellerick’s Pharmacy, Mellerick Opticians or Fermoy Medical Hall.
