Adolescence Unplugged

26 May 2021 | 7:30pm (AEST)

Adolescence Unplugged

Commonly known as the ‘queen of common sense’, Maggie Dent has become one of Australia's favourite parenting authors and educators, with a particular interest in resilience, the early years and adolescence. A trusted voice, Maggie has major books to her name including the bestselling Mothering Our Boys and her 2020 release, From Boys to Men. Maggie is also host of the ABC podcast, Parental As Anything.

The world has changed since those of us who are raising and supporting adolescents went through our own teenage journey. The rise of social media and mobile technology, the huge focus on body image, increased sexualisation and access to pornography — it’s a lot for teenagers and those who live and work with them to contend with. In this webinar, Maggie draws on almost 40 years of knowledge and experience in teaching, counselling and raising adolescents to support those of you who are travelling alongside adolescents on their bumpy ride to adulthood.
