Developing Resiliency in All Children
WENDY MOGEL, PhD
February 7, 2017 – 7pm – Lower Gym
Renowned child psychologist and writer/educator Wendy Mogel helps us discover why so often students present as anxious and dependent when they so desire the feeling of independence and confidence. In her words, consider childrens’ anxiety as energy, imagination, and adventure turned against the self. In this talk, Dr. Mogel will show us the ways in which parents and educators can engage children in a way that builds their sense of independence and know-how, while strengthening their sense of purpose in their own lives and within their larger community.
Valley Beth Shalom Schools in partnership with Campbell Hall invite you to attend
PARENT EDUCATION WORKSHOP
Featuring Guest Presenter
DR. LISA MILLER
Nationally acclaimed author of The Spiritual Child: The New Science on Parenting for Health and Lifelong Thriving
February 9, 2017 – 7pm – Valley Beth Shalom
15739 Ventura Blvd., Encino, CA
In The Spiritual Child, psychologist Lisa Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality:
are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances
are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers
are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex
have significantly more positive markers for thriving, including an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success.
Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical psychologist to illustrate just how invaluable spirituality is to a child's mental and physical health, Miller translates these findings into practical advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop and encourage their children's as well as there own well-being. In this provocative conversation-starting book, Dr. Miller presents us with a pioneering new way to think about parenting our modern youth. VIEW THE FLYER
