Mark Le Messurier has devoted his life to improving the self-worth, wellbeing, mental health and life outcomes of young people. He focuses on who he calls the ‘tough kids’ – those who are struggling in some capacity. This includes children with disabilities, global developmental delays, disadvantage, disorders, neglect, or a combination of issues.

After a 20-year teaching career, Mark opened a private-practice consultancy to mentor children and teenagers who needed support beyond the school system, and to coach parents. His goal has always been to create environments that set children and adults up for success.

He’s authored numerous books for teachers and parents, including co-authoring What’s the Buzz? – a world-class social and emotional literacy education program. It’s become a standard course in the training of teachers, counsellors, psychologists, social workers, and youth workers in over 90 countries.

Mark’s generosity and consideration for others is profound, far reaching, and life changing. He’s helped many families and is a relatable role model and mentor. In 2022 Mark was awarded Senior Australian of the year for his work.

This workshop concerns an emotionally intelligent way to make sense of behaviour – then, how to work with it. Yes, it is practical, doable and heartening!

A creche will be offered at this session. Children will be in the room adjacent to the seminar with creche workers. Children will remain the responsibility of the parent or guardian on site at all times and will be brought to the adult accompanying them if there are in distress or are exhibiting behaviours that require an intervention.

This program is being brought to you by the District Council of Yankalilla with funding provided through the Alcohol and Drug Foundation as part of the Local Drug Action Team for this region. Thank you to the Rapid Bay Primary School for initiating this series of workshops and liaising with the other local school to determine relevant topics for families in our region.
