Honing in on hormones
Your Membership Content for April 2023
For those assigned female at birth, you might notice that, at certain times of the month, you experience mood fluctuations, increased anxiety, bodily discomfort, challenges with sleep and appetite, and maybe lower self-esteem. Research has shown us that you may also experience challenges to your executive functioning throughout the month – these are heavily linked to hormonal changes!
Look out for our live events and support groups, courses & resources all geared towards helping us understanding more about the link between hormones and executive functioning.
Victoria & Dr Laurie Faith - Activated Learning
18th April, 20.00-21.00 GMT
This month, we hear from long term colleague in the field of executive functioning Dr Laurie Faith. Victoria first met Laurie in 2017 when she was still completing her PHD. Her pedagogical approach: Activated Learning, now forms the basis of our schools training. She has published widely on the topic and is the co-author of the wonderful book: Executive Function Skills in the Classroom: Overcoming Barriers, Building Strategies.
Join Victoria as she hears Laurie’s executive function story; from learner, to classroom teacher, followed by her lightbulb moment which changed the course of her life and career forever.
Join us on the night to input into the discussion via the chat or listen along to the episode when we publish it on our podcast.
