Your Child’s Mind: Promoting Motivation, Grit, and Executive Functioning
Rachna Varia, PhD and Kristi Guadagnoli, PsyD are co-founders of MindWell Psychology. As both parents and psychologists, they understand how important it is to know and foster your child’s unique learning style.
Their talk will identify how our children learn and the importance of using natural strengths and developing strategies to improve on weaknesses. In addition, they will discuss the role of executive functioning, or how a student can learn to learn. Learning is an active process and many students have a more passive or disorganized approach.
- What is the role of motivation and perseverance?
- How can we teach and model the importance of grit or working hard?
- How do we parent and teach our children without it becoming a power struggle?
Dr. Varia and Dr. Guadagnoli will be presenting the latest research, practical techniques, and real life examples in an interactive and informative manner.
The talk is open to the public and will be held at 7 PM at Oakwood School on Wednesday, October 8th.
