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.
