Adolescence is a time of big social changes, emotional changes and changes in relationships. A recent survey conducted by the Hong Kong Playground Association last month, asked 3,177 young people, aged six to 24, showed that 31.6% of participants suffered from mild to extremely severe stress, while 38.7% had moderate to extreme anxiety. This presentation focuses on prevention and on what modern psychological science says parents can do to build happy and resilient young people.
Presented by Australia’s highest profile child and adolescent psychologist, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg this entertaining and informative session will equip parents with the skills, knowledge and evidence based strategies to help young people successfully tackle the developmental tasks of adolescence and to put in place the protective factors that reduced the chances of them developing any of the high prevalence disorders.
