Watch Tim Klein’s parent webinar on helping our kids emerge from this crisis stronger and more resilient

In our latest The Parents Website Webinar, educator, therapist and school counsellor Tim Klein challenged our thinking on how we can view the pandemic and explained how our kids can emerge as stronger people. Here, you can watch the full webinar.

Our children are facing big challenges coping and adapting to life in lockdown. How will the experience affect them – and how can they grow from it?

In this webinar, Tim Klein discusses how we can help our young people become life-long thrivers.

Richard Tedeschi and Lawrence Calhoun coined the term ‘post-traumatic growth’ to capture the phenomenon, defining it as the positive psychological change that is experienced as a result of the struggle with highly challenging life circumstances.

In this webinar for parents and carers, Tim talks about the role post-traumatic growth will play with young people around the globe. Tim will also focus on purpose and how to develop purposeful goals in order to become more engaged, more self-directed, more resilient, and ultimately, more successful.

Key Takeaways

  • understanding of how post-traumatic growth can help us flourish after the unknown
  • Awareness of the role purpose plays
  • tips on how to navigate school, career and life.
