Resilient Children: symposium with Patrizio Paoletti and Adele Diamond

  • 07 May 2019

How can we make our children more resilient and happy?

 

On Tuesday 7 May, from 5.30 pm at the Antico Monastero di San Biagio in Nocera Umbria (PG), Fondazione Patrizio Paoletti is organising the free international symposium “Resilient Children” with Patrizio Paoletti, president of the Foundation, and Adele Diamond, one of the 15 most influential neuroscientists in the world. The training event starts with the fundamental question that every parent, teacher, educator and anyone working in contact with the world of children necessarily asks: how can we make our children resilient and happy?

The period from childhood to adolescence is the phase of development in which the human brain is particularly plastic. This intrinsic characteristic means that we can intervene, through educational and teaching strategies, to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of its development and maximise the child’s cognitive, emotional and motor functioning. This is not only crucial for the child’s health and well-being in the present, but also in the future, when he or she becomes an adult and needs important skills, such as resilience, to cope with life’s challenges.

 

Speeches by the internationally renowned neuroscientist Adele Diamond, President Patrizio Paoletti and Tal Dotan Ben-Soussan, Director of the Foundation’s Research Institute, will help you discover new concrete tools, based on the most advanced neuroscientific and psycho-pedagogical knowledge, to find new educational and teaching strategies that exploit the plasticity of the child’s brain, with the aim of making him a responsible, happy and resilient adult.
