The Power of Relationships: Nurturing Compassion and Resilience in Children

Register for our free ParentEd Talks event on Oct. 24 with co-authors Sam Goldstein, Ph.D. and Robert B. Brooks, Ph.D.

Climate change. The Covid crisis. Mass shootings. Times are tough, but are our kids? What allows some people to see each new challenge as an exciting opportunity, while others see only defeat and stress? Is resilience something you have to be born with, or can anybody learn it?

On Oct. 24, 2023, at 4 p.m. ET, join best-selling authors, researchers, and renowned psychologists, Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., and Robert B. Brooks, Ph.D. as they share powerful insights on how parents can support children in developing the skills necessary to more effectively deal with stress and pressure, solve complex problems, relate comfortably with others, and bounce back from disappointments, adversity, and trauma.

Unlock the key to raising calm, self-confident, resilient kids.

Learn how to:

  • Rewrite you and your childrens’ negative “scripts”
  • Cultivate inner strength and optimism (especially in tough times)
  • Increase empathy, problem-solving, and self discipline
  • Build more self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence in yourself and your kids

We know you’re busy. If you can’t attend the live event, you can still participate! After the event concludes, all registered attendees will be emailed a link to watch the recorded session at their convenience on any device.
