The Power of Mindsets: Nurturing Motivation and Resilience in Students
Dr. Robert Brooks
Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Dr. Robert Brooks is one of today’s leading speakers and authors on the themes of resilience, motivation, school climate, a positive work environment, and family relationships. His talks are filled with practical, realistic suggestions and he is renowned for the warmth and humor he uses to bring his insights and anecdotes to life.
In this presentation Dr. Brooks describes factors that help families to experience greater warmth and respect. He will discuss the importance of practicing empathy in order to understand and respond to each family member, changing “negative scripts,” establishing realistic expectations and goals, becoming a charitable family, disciplining in ways that promote self-discipline rather than resentment, and helping each family member to feel special and appreciated.
