Event description


RESILIENT PARENTING: Being an Emotionally Resilient Parent is a workshop is for parents of all ages.

Working from the perspective that resilience is contagious, this workshop will help mum, dad and careers build the strengths to overcome life’s obstacles and to triumph when threats materialize - as well as how to model resilient behaviour so that the young people in your life (and older ones) will grow their own emotional resilience strengths!

The program is conducted under licence from the International Resilience Institute Sydney (IRIS) and is a unique program of self-development.

The IRIS learning model is based on prominent and recent research in the area of resilience, which tells us two key things:

  1. Resilience is not exclusively innate – it can be learnt; and

  2. A person’s resilience increases as one continually applies resilient thinking and behaviors in their everyday lives

IRIS RESILIENCE FUNDAMENTALS workshop is inspired by some of the great authors in this (and related) fields including such notable theorists as Albert Ellis, Tim Beck, Suniya Luthar, Richard Tedeschi, Lillian Comos-Diaz, Anthony Kidman and Karen Saakvitine. However, our program is most influenced by our readings into the works of Martin Seligman, Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté (someone our team had the pleasure of tutoring under in Pennsylvania some years back).

Through a process of retrospective learning your child will master eight fundamental strengths that will not only improve their resilience but will also help them to retain joy in their life.

IRIS strengths have been inspired by the published works of the American Psychological Society in this area and include…

Strength 1 Making Connections

Strength 2 Managing Icebergs

Strength 3 Learned Optimism

Strength 4 Accurate Thinking

Strength 5 Emotional Control

Strength 6 Keeping it in Perspective

Strength 7 Empathy

Strength 8 Confront Adversity Head On

Each persons learning outcomes is very individual as your personal learning outcomes are guided by the facilitator of the day. Your scheduled facilitator is Shane Warren - a registered psychotherapist, certified clinical supervisor, certified practicing hypnotherapist and certified practicing coach. Shane is the Chair of the Board of the International Resilience Institute Sydney and a father of three boys.
