2022 SYMPOSIUM PRESENTER SPOTLIGHT
Dr. Tina Payne Bryson
KEYNOTE ADDRESS SNEAK PEEK : The Power of Showing Up
One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out—in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships—is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them.
In an age of scheduling demands and digital distractions, showing up for your child might sound like a tall order.
But as Tina Payne Bryson reassuringly explains, it doesn’t take a lot of time, energy, or money.
Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence.
Based on the latest brain and attachment research, Dr. Bryson shares stories, scripts, simple strategies, illustrations, and tips for honouring the Four S’s effectively in all kinds of situations—when our kids are struggling or when they are enjoying success; when we are consoling, disciplining, or arguing with them; and even when we are apologizing for the times we don’t show up for them.
