Description

Part 1: The Emotional Life of Young People (and Adults) - presented by Professor Marc Wilson and Kealagh Robinson, Victoria University of Wellington

The Youth Wellbeing Study Team from Victoria University will present on emotion regulation among adolescents and families. Emotion regulation is the ability to identify and describe emotional experience, and manage emotions as they arise. Emotion regulation is not about changing an emotion or stopping emotion (as this is often linked to poor coping in the long term), but is rather about learning helpful ways to tolerate a range of emotional experience. The presentation will include the latest research on emotion regulation, information regarding emotion regulation and the teenage brain, and strategies to support healthy emotion regulation among young people and their families.

Part 2: Growing Great Adults: An Introduction to Values-Based Parenting - presented by Susan Wall, Registered Psychologist

"Give me the child until he is seven, and I will give you the man". A well-known quote, reflecting what research and clinical experience shows us; that who we are as adults, is very much shaped by our experiences, attitudes and beliefs as a ​child and young person​. This workshop is aimed to help parents consider what values they most want their "future adult" to grow up with, and will look at how this can be best ​translated in to action, when raising ​a​ young person. Susan Wall, a Registered Psychologist in private practice, has a special interest in the influence that childhood ​experiences and beliefs, have on the rest of a person's life. Whilst clinically she helps individuals identify and reshape beliefs that may be unhelpful; she is keen to work in a proactive way, to help parents ​shape their parenting, so that they can ​raise the best ​kind of ​adults ​for the future.
