Event description
From Anxiety to Resilience

About this Event

Today, more and more children are affected by anxiety to the point of it impacting on their happiness and quality of life. Although anxiety can be a major problem, it doesn’t have to be a lifelong struggle. Research informs us that anxiety left unmanaged in childhood will almost always reoccur in adulthood. Fortunately, there’s so much we can do to help kids turn their anxiousness into real, lifelong resilience. Join Michael Grose and Dr Jodi Richardson for a parent presentation ‘From Anxiety to Resilience’.

Michael Grose, founder of Parenting Ideas, is one of Australia’s leading parenting educators and an award-winning speaker who has been informing and inspiring audiences around Australia, and internationally for more than 20 years.

He is a bestselling author of 11 books for parents including Spoonfed Generation, Thriving!, the best-selling Why First Borns Rule the World and Last Borns Want to Change It, and his latest release Anxious Kids: How children can turn their anxiety into resilience which he co-authored with Dr Jodi Richardson. Michael has had parenting segments on The Project, The Today Show, Weekend Sunrise, 3AW, ABC radio and more. He has contributed to Huff Post, Kidspot and Mamma Mia, and is a former columnist with News Ltd and Fairfax newspapers.

Dr Jodi Richardson is a mental health expert who is changing the way parents, teachers and schools think about and cultivate children’s mental health and wellbeing. She is the founder and director of Happier on Purpose, the mental health and wellbeing expert for Parenting Ideas and writer for both print and online publications. Jodi has developed her expertise over two decades of professional work in teaching, wellbeing, clinical practice and elite sport, including working for beyondblue on the national schools-based initiative for the prevention of depression. Recently Jodi has co-authored her first book Anxious Kids: How children can turn their anxiety into resilience with Michael Grose.

In this presentation we:

  • explore the origins of anxiety and why we are in the grip of an epidemic
  • show a new research-based approach to anxiety
  • introduce the tools to develop in kids for self-regulation
  • explain the importance of resilience promotion in kids and the critical traits and parenting teaching styles that contributes to resilience
  • look at lifestyle factors that minimise anxiety
  • show parents and teachers how to respond constructively to children’s anxious moments
