Event description

Description

Often, self harm is overlooked as an important issue amongst students. This workshop explores the issue and effective ways to handle it.

It will be led by David Sheehan, Head of Pastoral Care at Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong.

Mr. Sheehan graduated in 1997 with a BSc (Hons) in Estate Management and later began teaching EFL in the UK and in Tokyo. He then obtained a PGCE in Primary Education (Science Specialism) from University of East Anglia in 2002. In the UK, Mr. Sheehan went on to achieve certification in middle leadership with the National College for School Leadership, becoming a Year 6 and then KS3 leader in his middle school, as well as managing various curriculum leadership roles including IT, Science and MFL.

In 2006, he moved to Hong Kong to become the leader of IT teaching and learning, and cross-curricular IT development at a British international school. He decided to change his career focus in 2011 and specialise in additional needs support teaching, becoming a Dyslexia specialist in the Orton-Gillingham method, whilst also leading the writing team. He has since completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Inclusion & Learner Support (University of Dundee), Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology (University of Hong Kong) and his Masters in Counselling (Monash University).

During the course of his teaching career Mr. Sheehan has taught from Foundation to Year 9 as a class teacher, as a specialist subject teacher, additional needs support teacher and counsellor. He has led various teams and curriculum subjects and now specialises in the area of pastoral care.

He has worked with children across the school, in a range of context and with a wide variety of special needs; in areas such as literacy, language/communication, Autism, Downs Syndrome, EAL, behaviour and cognition. He also led a team of specialist practitioners in speech pathology, psychology, counselling, education and occupational therapy in Hong Kong, to support children and families whatever their need.
