Guest Speakers:

Shane Martin:Positive Parenting: Harnessing Strengths within Children

Shane is a leading psychologist within the area of education. He specialises in selfhelppsychology and believes that psychology has a vital role to play in preventingillness as well as treating it, in highlighting strengths as well as identifying weaknessesand in fostering the positive traits in people. As parents, we all want our children togrow into happy adults; but sometimes we feel as though we have little real influenceover them as they grow older. New scientific research reveals that happiness canbe cultivated within the home, school and community and that parenting stylesand practices have a tremendous effect on children’s emotional outlook on life. Bypromoting some basic positive traits and harnessing their inner strengths we canencourage our children to have a more positive view of self, others and the world.Parenting can be challenging but also a positive and fulfilling experience. We need towork at being more ‘positive’ in our approach.
