Two local clinical psychologists will head a talk at Howick College next week to address vaping, addictions and strategies for parents.

Clinicians from The Psychology Group – Anmol Chawla and Dr Kirsten Davis – will discuss the increasing prevalence of vaping amongst youth and the psychological aspects of addiction.

“We will provide practical advice for parents and caregivers to have brave conversations to both understand vaping and motivate their young person to make decisions around their use,” says Davis.

“The aim is to provide valuable insights and evidence-based strategies to create a safer and healthier environment for our youth, fostering their wellbeing and guiding them towards a brighter future.”

The event is on Tuesday, August 22, 6.45pm for 7pm at Howick College’s Bill Dimmery Performing Arts Centre in Sandspit Rd, Howick.

Cost: $5 cash koha/donation at the door.
