Keynote Speaker and Adddress: Child and Family Therapist Jennifer Kolari is one of the nation’s leading parenting experts and the founder of Connected Parenting. She uses anecdotes, humour and personal experiences to deliver a practical workshop on how to deal with teen anxiety. Both theory (brain science and self psychology) and practice of the connected parenting model is presented in a 4 step by step model known as the CALM technique. The technique is not based on simple minded behavioral solutions, but on building nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion.
