Episode 4: Working together to support children’s mental health with Kate Silverton

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Alistair Bryce Clegg and Kate Silverton return for the final episode to round up the topic of understanding children’s behaviour. 

Kate and Alistair touch on concepts discussed so far, stressing the need to understand the science behind behaviour, advocating for viewing children through the lens of neuroscience to promote empathetic responses.  

Safe and secure environments

The importance of providing a secure and safe environment for children to develop and learn is a central theme, with an emphasis on fostering empathy, setting simple boundaries, and integrating play and movement into early education.  

The discussion encourages a shift from traditional disciplinary approaches towards a more understanding and science-informed method of supporting children’s mental health and well-being.
