Dr. Deborah MacNamara is the author of the best-selling book Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers (or anyone who acts like one), is on Faculty at the Neufeld Institute, and is the Director of Kid’s Best Bet, a Counselling and Family Resource Center. Her book Rest, Play, Grow has been translated into Russian and French languages with Italian, German, Spanish, and Danish versions currently underway.

We all want our children and students to thrive – to become all they were meant to be. But how is this to be accomplished? What conditions are required for optimal functioning? What experiences are essential to the unfolding of human potential?

In this keynote a comprehensive map for parents and professionals who want more than just strategies for handling problem behaviour will be explored by Dr.MacNamara. There are four essential experiences necessary for the unfolding of human potential. The answers to helping children flourish are surprising when seen in the context of current practice and prevailing attitudes.

Description

Dr. Deborah MacNamara is the author of the best-selling book Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers (or anyone who acts like one), is on Faculty at the Neufeld Institute, and is the Director of Kid’s Best Bet, a Counselling and Family Resource Center. Her book Rest, Play, Grow has been translated into Russian and French languages with Italian, German, Spanish, and Danish versions currently underway.

Deborah is a dynamic teacher and experienced counsellor who makes developmental science come to life in the everyday context of home and classroom. She also provides counselling services to parents and professionals to make sense of learning, behavioural, and developmental issues in kids – from babies to teens.

Deborah travels nationally and internationally, speaking to child and adolescent development issues to groups including the United Nations and the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education. With over 60 presentations a year to groups including parents, educators, child care professionals, social workers, foster and adopt community, and health care professionals, Deborah shares her insight and passion for making sense of kids. She is a developmentalist at heart who is continually fascinated by the mysteries and beauty inherent
in human maturation.
