Parent Education Event – Term 1

The Truth about Resilience Today

Resilience, or our ability to persevere with challenges and recover from set-backs, is the biggest factor when it comes to our success and well-being and this is particularly important for our children.

  • Why are resiliency levels decreasing in our kids?
  • What impact is our current society and technology having on our children’s well-being?
  • What action do we need to take?

This seminar brings together the key psychological and social factors influencing resilience in teenagers today.  Parents and students alike will benefit from the ideas presented in this seminar and will leave knowing a great deal about how we function as humans, why levels of resilience are going down and where we need to turn for solutions.

Presenter: John Meeske (MSc Psych Hons) was formerly the director of the psychological consultancy On Form Consultants.  He has been working in mental health for 20 years supporting people with diverse needs.  He now teaches Science and Physics here at ACG Parnell.

Details: Monday 1 April, 6-7pm at ACG Parnell.  Doors will open at 5.30pm for refreshments.

For catering purposes, please RSVP to Jennifer Wheadon by 28 March if you plan to attend.
