Presented by Anthea Millar

Many parents are struggling with how to bring up their children. The old autocratic system no longer works in this democratic age. Children have rights too, needing, of course, to be loved, and respected. However, what can get lost is that as well as having rights, children also have responsibilities.  How can we help discouraged parents help their children to feel loved and assume responsibility and develop a concern for others?


This one day workshop, using live demonstration of counselling with families, will introduce practical ways of supporting parents to encourage their children, and so feel encouraged  themselves. Alfred Adler’s psychology will underpin many of the principles presented, including a framework of understanding the dynamics between parent and child, the use of  encouragement, and positive alternatives to traditional modes of discipline.

The workshop will be relevant to all those working with parents and their children – in both traditional and non-traditional families.

Hot water is available for drinks but please bring your own tea/coffee/milk.  Please bring a packed lunch.
