'YOUNG AND HOPEFUL' - A book of collected stories

We are looking for Young People who would like to contribute their ideas about hope, or their experience of moving through or beyond a time of personal stress, with hope as a key focus. These stories will be published in a book, where other Young People can read about experiences that they can relate to.

Contact The Collaborative Trust's Fabulous Chairperson Steve Langley if you know of someone who might be interested in taking part in this project, or would like to find out more information (sklangley137[at]

Upcoming Workshops in Christchurch

Managing Angry and Anxious Behaviour in Young People: Thursday 22nd November

Do you work with challenging, difficult or aggressive young people? One of the most difficult parts of working with young people is when they become angry or upset. Many professionals often encounter this behaviour but they don’t know what to do about it. This workshop will cover:

  • What causes young people to “lose their temper” become angry or violent.
  • What are the stages that lead up to an angry out burst.
  • How to ensure your safety.
  • How factors like depression and other mental illness can play a role.
  • How to deescalate the situation as quickly as possible.

This training is presented by Michael Hempseed, and is a must for councillors, teachers, youth/social workers, nurses, and ANYONE working with Youth.

Register online for this workshop from The Collaborative.
