Glen Gerreyn: Game Over - Disconnecting Our Kids 2020

hero

The SEEDS Project Speaker Series invites you to an evening with Glen Gerreyn from The HopeFull Institute presenting his contemporary seminar Game Over: Disconnecting Our Kids.

You will be informed in this interactive, relevant and contemporary presentation on the nature and process of addiction including examples of computer usage, drugs and alcohol, social media, video games, smartphones, pornography and toxic relationships. Because we all have the potential to be addicted to something, Game Over addresses the psychological effects of addiction rather than just the physical attributes of chemical substances.

The seminar educates parents and carers on the four psychological effects of addiction; experimentation, misuse, fixation and dependency. Parents are shown the emotional states associated with each stage and the behaviour characteristics that accompany them. This gives parents a realistic and ‘everyday’ understanding on how easily addiction can progress from one stage to the next.

At the conclusion of this one hour seminar, parents and carers will leave feeling informed and prepared with realistic ideas to help their children create healthy habits.

2019 JWACS Parent Testimonials:

Glen is an engaging presenter who captures the audience through his experience as a parent. He is affirming, encouraging and most of all, realistic about the challenges of parenting.”

“Very enjoyable presentation, which reinforced some of the values/beliefs my husband and I already have but also provided some ideas about how to encourage and support our son. Liked that my Year 11 son had spent the day with Glen at the ‘Day of Hope’ and that we could talk about his ideas when I came home. Thank you.”

“The SEEDS Project is a great initiative and as a parent I appreciate the value I got from this session. It reaffirms our choice of school to see JWACS investing in such initiatives for parents and students.”
