This series of workshops aim to build resilience, empower parents and help support children’s individual needs. The three workshops cover topics on childhood anxiety, body safety and creating resilient families.

You can attend one or all three of our free workshops.

Creating an environment for kids to thrive

Parents are under increasing pressure to do it all. During 2020, many cracks were uncovered as families dealt with daily challenges from the pandemic. It is time for parents across Melbourne to understand change and how to manage the new COVID-normal.

Join us for an honest and frank workshop that looks at current research around the role of parents to empower and support children’s individual needs and explore the importance of creating an environment for children to thrive.

Our presenter, Annette Subhani, focuses on supporting individuals, families and the community during periods of challenge and natural transitions of life. Parents will leave with tangible insights and strategies to make a positive change and feel empowered to make choices to create a strong family and nurture resilient kids.

When: Thursday 24 June 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
