Dr Kaylene Henderson Flinders Speaker Series

Flinders Principal Stuart Meade invites parents and carers at Flinders and also in the community to a new parenting workshop on Thursday, 29 July as part of the 2021 Flinders Speakers Series.

The workshop is presented by trusted child psychiatrist and parenting specialist, Dr Kaylene Henderson, who first spoke at the College in 2019.

Kaylene returns to the Flinders Speaker Series with her new seminar, “Parenting your child to bring out their best”.

In her warm and relatable style, Kaylene imparts practical, research-based advice that helps parents to feel more confident and capable in their important role.

What is the presentation about?

The 90-minute presentation will support parents in learning how to:

  • connect with your child to promote cooperation and resilience
  • teach problem solving skills
  • learn tips for calming sibling rivalry
  • avoid power struggles.

Who should attend?

The presentation is designed for parents of children aged 2-12 years, although all parents are invited. Teachers and other professionals are also welcome to attend, and certificates of attendance are provided if required.

What is the Flinders Speaker Series?

The Flinders Speaker Series began in 2018 as an ongoing seminar series designed to develop stronger partnerships between school, home and community. The aim is to hear from experts in areas such as parenting, health and wellbeing, education and industry in order to learn healthy and positive ways to guide and support our young people to navigate life and reach their potential.

The Flinders Speaker Series is supported by the Flinders P&F.
