Dr Suzanne Zeedyk

Tuesday 5 December 2023, 10am–12pm 
For those that can't attend on the day we will send out a private viewing link to the recorded session.

Join us for an insightful and edgy conversation with the indomitable Suzanne Zeedyk. Evidence that the pandemic has affected young children’s development just keeps emerging.  What happened in children’s lives that could have caused this impact, and what can we do now to help? 
Suzanne explores how changes in the daily rhythms of children’s relationships has altered their biology.  Children will have encountered more loss, anxiety and confusion than we adults have perhaps appreciated.  If we are brave enough to adopt this lens, we will be better placed to understand why play, conversation and laughter are now key to children’s recovery.
Please join us for a though-provoking and hopeful session that will be of value to every person in the country who spends time with young children, either as professionals or parents.


This webinar is aimed at anyone involved with young children, either professionals or parents.


Dr Suzanne Zeedyk is a research scientist fascinated by babies’ innate capacity to connect. Since 1993, she has been based at the University of Dundee’s School of Psychology, where she still holds an honorary post.
In 2011, she established an independent consultancy that enabled her to work more closely with the public. Suzanne now spends her time speaking with organisations throughout the UK and internationally who are keen to explore how they can foster connection, compassion and resilience. Suzanne is delighted with the growing cultural awareness of relationships, and she believes such commitment is needed even more strongly as we recover from the impacts of the pandemic.


The webinar will be delivered using Zoom – please check your organisation permits access to this platform. If not, we suggest using a personal device to access the event.
