Title: The Perils of Praising Kids: How to Go Beyond Praise to Spark Progress for Any Student
Speaker: Mitch Abblett, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and Consultant
Description: We live in a society steeped in what Mitch Abblett calls the "praise and blame paradigm." Well-intentioned educators and clinicians can think their praise of kids is helping, and yet research increasingly points to problems for students. Join MPY and Mitch for this seminar in celebration of the release of his new book Prizeworthy: How to Connect, Cultivate Character and Unlock the Potential in Every Child and learn methods for breaking your praise-habits and building habits of prizing potential and possibility in kids every day.
