About the Conference

The Neufeld Institute is once again joining forces with Jack Hirose Seminars to present a live three-day conference in Saskatoon on November 6-8, 2023. Our theme is Towards Flourishing Children and Youth. Although there is significant alarm these days concerning the deteriorating mental health of our children, there is still much confusion about how to reverse this disturbing trend. The ultimate answers lie in providing the conditions that are conducive to the unfolding of human potential. I am delighted to be joined by three of our most outstanding Neufeld Institute speakers – Deborah MacNamara, Tamara Strijack, and Eva de Gosztonyi. Together we will walk around the subject, using the attachment-based developmental approach to shed light on the dynamics, and based on this insight, to point to a way through. Whether a medical or mental health professional, a therapist or counselor, a teacher or school administrator, a day care provider or early childhood educator, a youth and family worker, a concerned parent or grandparent, this conference will help set the stage for turning stress around, in our children, our students, and even in ourselves. On behalf of the entire conference team, we look forward to engaging you in this timely theme.
