Treating Sleep Deprived Adolescents
Thu. 27 October 2016, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEDT
This sleep education seminar is conducted by Adolescent Sleep Physician, Dr Chris Seton and Adolescent Sleep Psychologist, Dr Amanda Gamble from the Woolcock Institute. It has been specifically designed by them for parents, teachers, counsellors, psychologists and others involved in high school education. The seminar will teach you all you need to know about adolescent sleep, as well as showing you how to detect problems and implement practical assistance to your sleepy students.
Optimal learning is impossible without adequate sleep. Adolescent sleep deprivation is increasingly common in our busy world, and carries many risks and consequences for teenagers. Sleep deprivation is related to poor academic outcomes, psychological problems, reduced school attendance, and increases in risk taking behaviours. Educationalists are therefore well placed to detect sleep deprivation, but implementing specific management strategies is difficult as teens are resistant to some components of sleep health treatment. This seminar outlines detailed treatment pathways and empowers educationalists and parents to help students optimise their sleep.
Evening refreshments are provided on the night.
