Scott is a frequent guest speaker and lecturer. His previous involvement with pre-adolescent children in his workshop co-created and co-presented with his wife, Preparing for Puberty and the Changes of Adolescence, further substantiates his work with children and the trust that parents and educators have placed in him in dealing with delicate and sensitive topics.
