Mockingbird Presents a Ross Barker Workshop

A duo of Workshops relating to the understanding and management of hyperaroused and emotionally distressed children and adolescents.

Ross has 25yrs experience working with families of atypical children in a range of mainstream mental health, community and private practice settings.

He has a proven record with the Mockingbird Families as the Contracted Behavioural Consultant.

Workshop 1 must be attended prior to Workshop 2. Both held at The Lighthouse Church, 260 Welcome Bay Road. Parking available. Bookings essential.

Workshop 1

This workshop relates to the  children and adolescents. These are the children for whom the usual encouragement and correction has proven ineffective. They may have no formal diagnosis or any of the following:  Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Social Phobia, Sensory Processing/Integration difficulties, PDD/NOS, Giftedness, anxiety Disorders etc.

Workshop 2

In Workshop One Ross deliberately lightens the mood when dealing with the emotional wounding that parents can suffer from misunderstanding and aversive judgement. Workshop 2 addresses these matters more directly and offers tools for emotional protection and healing. It also covers tools for parents to work effectively with the wider service systems of Education, Mental Health and Social Services.
