Event description

Description

We all want our children and students to thrive - to become all they were meant to be. But how is this to be accomplished? What conditions are required for optimal functioning? What experiences are essential to the unfolding of human potential? Dr. Neufeld will put the pieces together to reveal rather surprising answers to this quintessential question of human development. A consciousness of the irreducible needs of children is a much needed antidote to a society that has become outcome driven and a culture that has lost its intuitive wisdom.

  • Food, beverages and social networking 6-7pm
  • Lecture 7-9pm
