Our Kids in Mind
A wellbeing roadmap with Aidan Harvey-Craig
With a wealth of experience working with young people as a psychology teacher, lecturer in the psychology of education, leader of student wellbeing and school counsellor, the latest guest, Aidan Harvey-Craig knows first-hand how young people can best manage their wellbeing.
In this episode clinical psychologists, Bettina Hohnen and Jane Gilmour seek to find out more about the series of ‘wellbeing hacks’ Aidan has written about in his book - quick tips to help young people manage their mental health. These include the value of ‘doing almost nothing’ and how this, risk-taking and agency are in danger of being lost to smartphones, and the benefits that dancing in your room alone to your favourite song can have!
