Life Online for our Teenagers

Join us for an online talk this Wednesday from teenage brain expert Nicola Morgan, as she explores how our increasingly screen-based lives affect youngsters and how they can achieve a better balance.

On Wednesday 6th October at 7pm, LEH's Wednesday Wellbeing Lecture Series resumes with a talk by Nicola Morgan on teenagers’ lives online. She will talk about the challenges of distraction, over-use, addiction, self-esteem and body image, and how we can support teenagers' well being alongside all of this.

Nicola Morgan, often known as The Teenage Brain Woman, is an internationally-acclaimed author and authority on teenage wellbeing, how stress impacts performance, effects of screens, social media and reading for pleasure. She was originally an English teacher whose work with dyslexic students led her to train in Specific Learning Difficulties, which in turn led to her lasting interest and expertise in the learning brain.

She was a multi-award-winning teenage novelist before writing the best-selling Blame My Brain, which was shortlisted for the Aventis Prize. Following this with the Teenage Guide to Stress, Teenage Guide to Friends, Positively Teenage, Life Online, Body Brilliant, Exam Attack and her most recent, The Awesome Guide to Sleep, as well as her popular teaching materials, underlined Nicola’s expertise.

In 2018, she was awarded the SLA’s prestigious award for Outstanding Contribution to Information Books. Her next titles are Be Resilient (released July 2021) and Ten Ways to Build a Brilliant Brain. Please see the attached poster to book your place on what promises to be a fascinating and invaluable evening.
