Free parenting seminars with Michael Carr-Gregg

While the COVID-19 crisis has transformed the way we lead our lives almost overnight, Manningham’s popular Parenting Seminar Series has quickly adapted, pivoting to online webinars to keep the wheels turning.

In recognising the effects continuous media coverage, home schooling and isolation are having on families, they have partnered with well-known child psychologist, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, to present a series of webinars focusing on raising resilient children and supporting families during this pandemic.


Tuesday 19 May – Raising Resilient Kids in the Coronavirus era 7-8pm

Topics include managing home-schooling, self-care and dealing with uncertainties. This is a 45 minute webinar with 15 minutes for questions.


Thursday 21 May – Managing Year 11 and 12 in the face of uncertainty 7-8pm

Year 11 and 12 students now face unprecedented disruption and uncertainty around the completion of the school year. With no firm decisions on how, when or if final exams will be held, many students are understandably anxious.

In this session, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg will provide practical tips on how parents and students can manage these challenging times.

This is a 45 minute webinar with 15 minutes for questions.


Tuesday 26 May – Helping teachers manage their wellbeing in the Coronavirus era 7-8pm

Before COVID-19 turned our lives upside down, more than half of Australian school teachers suffered from anxiety and almost one-fifth were depressed.

This seminar is targeted towards anyone, in particular teachers, who are feeling anxious during the pandemic. It will provide you with the skills, knowledge and strategies to manage your own wellbeing during this challenging time.

This is a 45 minute webinar with 15 minutes for questions.
