December Seminar – The Speakers

The December seminar which will take place on Thursday 10 December at 6pm will be presented by a licensed psychotherapist Ms Chinh Le, supported by our Primary professional Ms Madeleine, and will focus on “Developing Age-Appropriate Skills for Toddlers”.

1. Ms. Chinh Le, Psychotherapist

  Chinh is a licensed psychotherapist, born in Vietnam and raised in the United States. She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology and pursued her Master’s in Clinical Social Work shortly thereafter, specializing in clinical work with children, youth and families. She has worked in a variety of outpatient settings, including schools, community clinics and private practice, helping kids and parents find solutions to emotional, social and family issues. In addition, she spent years with researchers at the Social Development Research Group at the University of Washington, studying risk factors that contribute to student problem behaviors, as well as strengths or resiliency characteristics that can prevent later problem behaviors. Chinh is passionate about promoting the healthy development of children, parents and families across our two cultures. In 2012, she moved back to Ho Chi Minh City with her husband and two children, where she currently provides outpatient psychotherapy services to children and adults at Family Medical Practice.

2. Ms Madeleine Brooks, Key Stage 1 Coordinator, BVIS

  Madeleine has been a teaching for the last ten years and she specialises in early child development in particular.  This initially began during her study of Psychology at University, through her studies of child development and learning theories. Following the completion of her degree, she went on to complete her teaching qualification, which included specific areas of focus on child development of toddlers. Madeleine has been passionately fronting BVIS’ unique bilingual Phonics programme and Early Reading Coffee Mornings for the last four years. She has in recent years held the position of Head of Reception (F3) in DESS a British Embassy School in Qatar, in which she led the implementation of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, working closely with advisors from England to ensure the most up to date methods were implemented.  Following this she became a Physical Education Specialist, and it was her that cemented her beliefs in the crucial importance of motor skills in her young learners. Recently she has presented at the Early Years Network, Ho Chi Minh City and Tangling Trust School, Singapore, speaking about her passion for Early Reading.

Admission is free and seminars are open to BVIS and external parents, but places are limited, therefore please pre-register for your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
