Join us via Zoom! This month we are joined by Shae Chester, National Community Educator from Canteen
In this session you will learn about how to communicate effectively with your children, how to prepare for difficult conversations and tips on how to offer and access support. Canteen’s research shows that when parents communicate openly, their children are likely to experience less distress and anxiety.
Key Points covered:
- Common parental concerns and reactions from young people
- Understanding the needs of young people
- How to prepare for an open and honest conversation
- Looking after yourself
- How to access further support from Canteen
Shae Chester (National Community Educator) has been with CanTeen since 2009, and has held four different roles within the organisation, which gives her a great insight in working with her colleagues and the young people and families Canteen support. She is passionate about working collaboratively with communities around the country, to educate about services, and how communities can support each other, so that families impacted by cancer will have the compassion and care they need during their experience.
