SACAP (the South African College of Applied Psychology) will be hosting a special parent morning at its Durban Campus on Saturday, the 12th of September. Aimed at promoting family well-being, the theme of the event is ‘Resilient Parenting’ and the programme features Mom & Author, Gabi Lowe who will be giving a compelling, inspirational talk after the release of her memoir ‘Get Me to 21’. A tour de force when it comes to resilient parenting, the book rocketed to number 3 on the Exclusive Books Bestseller Chat within three weeks of its launch.
In times of deep uncertainty and relentless change, resilience is one of the most important qualities we can nurture in our children, but not many of us know what this is and how to do it. Gabi Lowe’s experience of raising a beloved daughter, Jenna Lowe, who developed a rare lung condition and became a unique champion of organ donation in South Africa, has been at the harshest coal-face of resilient parenting. As a Life Coach, Gabi expertly makes the lessons she has learnt accessible and relatable to other parents.
The SACAP ‘Resilient Parenting’ event also includes an important session with Psychologist, Elizabeth Campos whose work is focused on how young adults can increase their resilience through attitudes and skills to impact positively on academic, social and emotional functioning. Julia helps parents understand their children’s behaviour as communication. Elizabeth will present that steps that young people can take to improve their resilience and share practical advice for parents on how they can support their child’s journey.Available Spaces for this event: 25
