Turnbull Brown says the biggest challenge facing teenagers is the increased levels of depression and anxiety which research suggests is correlated with social media.

During this webinar she will focus on understanding the framework of wellbeing in your child’s life, how to adopt ‘positive psychology’ in the home, the benefits of wellbeing principles, and being mindful of social media vortexes which correlate to increased mental health issues.

July is Resilience Month at The Fathering Channel

Resilience is not something we are all born with – it is the learned response to challenges, risks, fears that confront us, and how we respond to them, get back up and move forward.

Resilience is important for several reasons; it enables us to develop mechanisms for protection against experiences which could be overwhelming, it helps us to maintain balance in our lives during difficult moments or stressful events like COVID-10, and it can also protect us from the development of some mental health issues in our lifetime.

Join us this month for a series of academic lead webinars for fathers, father figures and partners on building resilience with leaders in their field from Australia and Canada on the Fathering Channel.
