During Autumn 2018 we will be holding a series of Evening Workshops about how we can read with our children about things that matter in the family and things from outside that affect the family.
The first in the series takes place on Thursday 25th October from 7:00pm – 8:30pm. Booking fee is €25 and tickets are available on Eventbrite by clicking here
In June, at the National Library of Ireland, Parental Pathways presented a unique coming together of the worlds of psychotherapy, literature, neuroscience and art in a thought provoking conference that peered through the looking glass of children’s literature, promoting emotional and psychological resilience.
Now in its second year, the conference ignited important conversations on how Children’s literature is often a bridge between brain development and developing the ability to relate. This connection is not just useful for psychotherapeutic treatment purposes but also from a parenting perspective – building emotional resilience, which develops early and lasts a lifetime.
In this series of Evening Workshops, we are now delving deeper into the magical world of Children’s Literature, its role in building resilience and how we can read with our children about things that matter in the family and things from outside that affect the family.
The first of these workshops takes place on Thursday 25th October from 7:00pm – 8:30pm and features Dr. Amanda Piesse, presenting the topic of blended families using relevant childrens literature, accompanied by Maria Mc Grane discussing the psychological impact and inclusivity of blended family dynamics and communication. The workshop is designed to encourage audience participation in the form of questions and observations contributing to an engaging experience for all!
