Dr Justin Coulson is one of Australia’s most respected relationships speakers, authors, and researchers. He is one of very few people in Australia with a PhD in Positive Psychology – and the ONLY person in the country (and almost the world) whose PhD includes a careful look at the intersection of Positive Psychology and relationships, particularly in family life. Dr Coulson will be presenting the following session:

9 Ways to a Resilient Child

Parents will learn the psychological secrets that build their child’s sense of identity, strengths and growth mindset in order to perform better, be happier and build resilience.
9 Ways to a Resilient Child is based on Dr Justin Coulson’s best-selling book of the same name. It shows parents how to help their children cope powerfully and positively with the challenges that life throws at them.

This presentation is one of Justin’s most popular presentations with powerful stories and illustrations that every parent can relate to. He explains the factors that help and hinder resilience, why common advice such as “toughen up Princess” just doesn’t work, and how competition and praise may undermine resilience.

THE CONTENT OF THE EVENINGS INCLUDES COMMUNICATION OF KEY COLLEGE INITIATIVES AND TOPICS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO THE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS AT THE COLLEGE.
