THE STRENGTH-SWITCH: PUBLIC LECTURE AND BOOK LAUNCH
Thu. 15 June 2017, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm AEST
The extraordinary results of focusing on our children’s strengths rather than trying to correct their weaknesses, is revealed in this game-changing book for parents. By showing us how to throw the ‘strength switch’, Professor Lea Waters demonstrates how we can help children build resilience, optimism and achievement.
As a strength-based scientist for more than 20 years, Professor Waters has seen how this approach enhances self-esteem and energy in children and teenagers, and how parents find it exciting and rewarding. With many specific techniques for parents, she demonstrates how to discover your children’s strengths and talents, use positive emotions as a resource, build strong brains, deal with problem behaviour and talk about difficult situations and emotions. The Strength Switch shows parents that a small shift can yield enormous results.
Book signing will be from 7-8pm.
