Your Membership Content for May 2023
How are your executive functioning building blocks? At Connections in Mind. We consider 8 blocks to be essential in supporting not only our optimal executive functioning, but our general well-being as well.
This month, we dive into exploring what we consider as three of the most vital factors that influence how our executive functions function (or struggle to function) optimally – SLEEP, EXERCISE & NUTRITION.
Stay tuned for our Masterclasses, webinars, live events, courses & resources all geared towards helping you to get the basics right & look after your body so you can live your best life!

Victoria & Jamie Galpin - Uncertainty and executive functioning
17th May, 13.00-14.00 GMT
In this live podcast recording Victoria is joined by Chartered Developmental Psychologist Dr Jamie Galpin. Jamie is a Lecturer at UCL and Education Officer at NASEN and Author of new book The Anxiety Workbook for Supporting Teens Who Learn Differently: A Framework and Activities to Build Structural, Sensory and Social Certainty.
Victoria met Jamie at the London SEN show 2022 where Jamie was speaking about the link between young people’s mental ill health and uncertainty. He is just as interested in the impact of stress and uncertainty on the brain and brain development as Victoria and this is sure to be a fascinating and insightful conversation.
Professionals, parents and older young people will all benefit from tuning into this conversation. Listeners will learn about Jamie’s approach through the medium of his life story. Victoria will facilitate a semi-structured interview where questions from the audience will be posed to Jamie; join us on the day to get involved in the conversation.
