Our parenting approaches tend to be influenced by the patterns in our own family relationships, and can impact the ways that we respond to our children's behavior. Parents tend to resort to three common discipline practices: Consequences, Alarm-based, and Separation-based discipline. Learn why these methods can be complicated for children who come from difficult beginnings in life. 

Our speaker, Psychologist John Shanahan, will unpack these practices and explore the best ways for approaching your child, as this may be different than how you were parented as a child. Dads will have a chance to share and discuss what their own experiences have been.

John Shanahan specialises in childhood and adolescent psychology. He is the Director of Central Health Partners Child Development Team, the Director of The Positive Group in Asia, the Hon. Past President of the Psychotherapy Society of Hong Kong, and the Psychologist on the Safety Committee of Outward Bound Hong Kong. He is a Visiting Professor at the University of St Joseph and an Advisor to the Hawn Foundation and Kids4Kids.

Please note this workshop is for fathers, prospective fathers, and those who are interested in becoming fathers.
