Does your child:

  • Have trouble fitting in with other kids?
  • Struggle to meet like-minded mates?
  • Feel excluded by friendship groups
  • Miss the social cues that other children send?
  • Find it hard to compromise or follow the rules of games?
  • Feel lonely after starting at a new school?
  • Have conflict with peers because of their need to be ‘the boss’?

Presenter: Louella Covich – Psychologist

At Kids First’s next free Community Service Seminar, you’ll meet Louella Covich, a psychologist with a special interest supporting children’s play, friendship and social skills.

Louella has helped many children find more effective ways to make and keep friends. In addition to her role as a psychologist, Louella is also a Play Therapist with lots of practical tips to share with parents and carers.
