Event description
Join our Parenting Seminar Series to explore the ten most important things you need to raise happy and resilient young people.

About this Event

“Why do we need a community talk on building happy and resilient children? Simple – the journey from childhood through to young adulthood seems to have become so much harder to navigate,” said Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg. “Just when a young person's identity and sense of self is at its most fragile, they are facing more potential rejection and judgment courtesy of social media, than even the most robust of egos could handle,” he said. “Like never before, as parents, carers, other adults we need the skills, knowledge and strategies to promote resilience in young people.”

Alliance Counselling is pleased to bring you these talented speakers:

Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg is one of Australia's highest profile adolescent and child psychologists. He currently works within private practice as well as consulting to Inowell a joint project between PWC, the University of Sydney and the Federal Government. He wrote his PhD at the University of NSW on Adolescents with Cancer and named and founded Can-Teen more than 30 years ago with a group of young cancer patients. He has worked as an academic, researcher, and political lobbyist. He is also the author of 15 books and is an Ambassador for Smiling Mind, Big Brothers Big Sister, and sits on the Board of the Family Peace Foundation and the National Centre Against Bullying. He is a columnist for a number of publications including the Huffington Post, Girlfriend Magazine and the Australian Boarding Schools Association publication LightsOut.
