Every parent’s worst nightmare is wondering whether their child or young person is able to withstand adversity and have the ability to resolve issues without violence. In the last few years, the everyday word ‘resilience’ has captured the attention and imagination of parents. educators, health professionals, and young people themselves. Resilience has positive connotations and entails understanding and seeking out good outcomes for young people and/or families in circumstances where problems are often expected.
In this workshop, we will explore the meaning of resilience where strengths and opportunities are used to build on, rather than (or alongside) problems, deficits, or psychopathology to be remedied or treated.
Join this workshop to gain a better understanding and insight of parents’ actual and potential contributions to children’s resilience and to parental resilience, which is sometimes subsumed within ‘family resilience’. This workshop will bring together research, grassroots experience, and a faith perspective to help bring a holistic approach to the topic.
This workshop will address:
- Causes of behavior
- Attitude of gratitude
- Balancing IQ, EQ, and SQ
