Carol Dweck, Ph.D., "Mindset: Positive Skills for Powerful Kids"
Dr. Dweck's groundbreaking book, "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success", is required reading for many local teachers. In it, Dweck explains why being smart and talented doesn't always mean you'll be successful, and why a "fixed" mindset can limit or even undermine success. This lecture presents the rare chance to hear Dweck explain the one simple idea about the brain that can raise your child's grades - and your productivity. Find out practical ways to encourage a "growth" mindset in your child - and create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment.
