SEMINAR: Treating Sleep Deprived Adolescents - For Parents and Educators

8th Jun 2017 - 8th Jun 2017 5:30 p.m. Woolcock Institute of Medical Research, Level 5, 431 Glebe Point Road, Glebe Woolcock Institute of Medical Research

Do you have sleepy teenagers at your school or at home? Come along to our evening sleep education seminar here at the Woolcock Institute on Thursday, 8 June 2017.

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 increasing in risk taking behaviours. Parents and educationalists are therefore well placed to detect sleep deprivation, but implementing specific management strategies is difficult as teenagers are resistant to some components of sleep health treatments. This seminar outlines detailed treatment pathways to help students optimise their sleep.

Presented by Adolescent Sleep Physician, Dr Chris Seton and Adolescent Sleep Psychologist Dr Amanda Gamble from the Woolcock Institute. This 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 teenagers.

COST: $120
