Dr Tom Nehmy to speak at Canberra Girls Grammar Junior SchoolMarch 06, 2017
Dr Tom Nehmy will spend the 6th and 7th of March with the Junior School at Canberra Girls Grammar, working with students, staff and parents.
The parent evening "Pathways to a Healthy Mind" will be from 7pm on March 6th, and will cover:
What resilience is, and how parents and teachers can help children cultivate it
The thinking skills that psychologists teach people to be emotionally healthy
The purpose and function of emotions, and how they affect behaviour
How to deal with unhelpful emotional impulses
How perfectionism can impede our achievement, and what to do about it
The keys to preventing depression, anxiety, and eating disorders in young people
Self-compassion - a powerful practice that is vastly more important than self-esteem
Parents will leave with a broad overview of the key ingredients to mental health and resilience in children, as well some practical ideas for how to put these concepts into practice.
