About this course

Discover the key to confident farewells with our comprehensive course led by Dr. Kimberley O'Brien, Principal Child Psychologist at Quirky Kid. This practical course equips parents with essential insights and evidence-based techniques to build trust and independence.

From understanding the triggers and impact of Separation Anxiety to exploring practical strategies like directive play therapy and graded exposure, you'll learn how to create a positive and supportive environment at school drop offs and other farewells.

Enhance resilience in your child and strengthen your parent-child bond with personalised rituals and role-playing exercises. Collaborate with educators to ensure a smooth transition at the school gate.  

Through hands-on activities, such as creating a school map and practising unique farewell rituals, parents will learn how to help their children to feel empowered by autonomy. Graded exposure techniques will be introduced, allowing children to prepare and understand the stages of separation, making the process more manageable and less overwhelming.
