I’ve organised a special ‘live’ seminar online on Saturday 23rd from 11am to 12.30 pm
Take your sleep-in and then join me for parenting tips
RAISING HAPPIER AND MORE RESILIENT CHILDREN
Who is this webinar for?
Parents, guardians, teachers, care-givers and people who work with children in creches.
What kind of webinar is it?
As parents, we all want our children to be happy and healthy; but sometimes we feel as though we have little real influence over them. New scientific research reveals that certain key traits can be cultivated within children that have a tremendous positive effect on their emotional outlook on life.
In recent years, parenting research has moved away from a deficit or risk factor model towards a more positive focus on predictors of positive outcomes (e.g. protective factors). This webinar seeks to promote some parenting behaviours and strategies that have been found to foster positive youth development
This webinar will explore five key themes and offer scientifically-validated strategies that parents can apply to influence their children in a positive way. Although the material will be geared more at younger children this course offers information that will benefit all ages.
The webinar is not the ‘be all and end all’ of parenting. It does not offer strategies or approaches for dealing with negative or challenging behaviour. It does not pretend to be specific but is generic in its emphasis. It offers some ideas that may should prove helpful. It examines the psychological evidence in harnessing positive traits in children and suggests ideas/strategies that can be practiced at home.
The webinar will be delivered ‘live’ but a recording of it will be made available to those who are unable to attend at the specified time.
Will reading material be made available to complement the webinar ?
An online library of resources and reading material on all five themes will be made available to participants.
The cost of the webinar is €30 (plus Eventbrite booking fee). The fee includes access to the webinar, resources and certificate of completion.
