Pathways to a Healthy Mind – Parent Workshop

This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

Based on years of research and clinical experience with children, adolescents and adults, the workshop will cover the following key concepts:

  • What resilience is, and how parents and teachers can help children to cultivate it
  • The “great mistake” parents make that causes problems, and what to do about it
  • The thinking skills that psychologists teach people to be emotionally healthy
  • The purpose and function of emotions and how they affect behaviour
  • How to deal with unhelpful emotional impulses
  • How perfectionism can impede our achievement, and what to do about it
  • The keys to preventing depression, anxiety, and eating disorders in young people
  • Self-compassion – a powerful practice that is vastly more important than self-esteem

Parents will leave with a broad overview of the key ingredients to mental health and resilience in children, as well practical ideas for how to put these concepts into practice.

***We encourage live-attendance at our events so that you can gain the most out of the session. However this event will be recorded and made available to view for a limited time by ticket holders who cannot attend the live workshop.***
