The challenges facing children and young people today can often feel overwhelming. We can despair as to how we might help children just to survive – let alone flourish! 

How do we help our children to become developmentally mature? What are the key conditions needed for this to happen? Are there other ways that our efforts and attention could be better spent, resulting in better outcomes for the children? Is flourishing even possible for a child when the world around them seems so alarming and difficult? We invite you to attend this two day online conference to examine these questions from various angles.
