Event description

Description

Often a child who struggles with her mental health will focus on some fault or imperfection that she has determined makes her 'bad' or 'unworthy' or 'unlovable.' What is the genesis of her sadness? Can she learn to feel better? How?

This workshop considers how depression is constructed and how it can be deconstructed by teaching self acceptance. A self accepting child is 'psychologically immunised' against the ravages of depression, anxiety and anger. As Jonas Salk (creator of the polio vacccine) when speaking to Martin Seligman once said:

"If I were a young scientist today, I would still do immunization. But instead of immunizing kids physically, I'd do it your way. I'd immunize them psychologically."

This is the 7th workshop of a series of 12 for 2016 and attracts 3 hours professional learning credit.
