Strengths-Based Parenting workshops

  • This event has passed.

Last year, 30 BGS parents took part in a series of workshops designed to introduce Strengths-Based Parenting. Feedback was extremely positive and the workshops will be offered again this year. These workshops will help parents to:

  • identify strengths in themselves and their children
  • harness the power of positive emotions
  • understand how the brain functions at various ages
  • unlock the magic of mindsets for success
  • implement tested strategies to manage stress.

Some studies suggest that these strategies may inoculate children against depression and anxiety, and boost their academic achievement by as much as 11%.

The presenter, Marie McLeod, is qualified in social work, adult education and positive psychology. All parents are welcome. Resources will be provided.

Dates:              2 June, 16 June, 21 July (3 sessions)

Time:                8.45–10.15am

Location:          BGS Wellbeing Centre
