Strength Switch Parenting Course - weekday afternoons
Time & Location
About the Event
The Strength Switch Parenting Course combines three face-to-face facilitated workshops with five online learning modules to help you learn and practice strengths-based parenting with your family. This course is based on research into strengths-based parenting and positive education together with three decades of research from strengths-based science and positive psychology.
This highly engaging course weaves together science, real-life stories, and interactive exercises which equip participants to help their children recognise and build upon their natural strengths. You'll learn how and why to place emphasis on your children’s strengths instead of focusing a disproportionate amount of energy on correcting their weaknesses. By learning how to flip the “Strength Switch,” you can help your children increase resilience, optimism and achievement. This approach enhances self-esteem and energy for both children and teenagers. The Strength Switch Parenting Course will show you that small shifts can yield enormous results.
This course was developed by Prof. Lea Waters, author of the book The Strength Switch: How the New Science of Strength-Based Parenting Can Help Your Child and Your Teen to Flourish. Prof. Waters is an internationally acclaimed expert in Positive Education, Past President of the International Positive Psychology Association, and the Founding Director of the University of Melbourne's Centre for Positive Psychology
