Parent Talk: Fiona Forman

Raising Resilient Children: Approaches from Positive Psychology

Resilience is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. Now, with the extra challenges they have faced in recent years, we need to equip them with the skills they need to flourish and thrive, despite these many difficulties and obstacles.

The field of Positive Psychology, which is the science of well-being, can offer us many approaches and ideas for nurturing their resilience, through a combination of support and skills.

In this talk, author and former teacher, Fiona Forman, (M. Sc. Applied Positive Psychology) will share insights and research on resilience, as well as practical resilience skills.

‘I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.’ Louisa May Alcott
