Fostering Resilience in a Stressed Culture

Nov. 17. 17 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Many more children than in the past are diagnosed these days with various learning and behaviour difficulties and many have problems learning from negative experiences. Schools are also having to deal with an increasing incidence of bullying which “zero tolerance” policies do not seem to be diminishing. Dr. Maté’s keynote, based on his best-selling books, will focus on the causes and underlying dynamics of the challenges faced by today’s children—and therefore, by the adults tasked with nurturing and educating them. It will be shown that the most important feature of any approach to resilience needs to be the attachment relationship between children and the adults responsible for their care. The follow-up Q&A session will allow for generous time for interactive dialogue with participants.
