Following the very positive feedback we received from all participants on Professor William Nicoll’s talks on Positive Education at the Genesis 2 Institute for Marriage and Family last year, we are pleased that Bill will be returning to the Institute, this time with his wife Prof. Monica Nicoll, herself an accomplished and reputed family psychotherapist and lecturer, giving two sessions at the Institute:

                                                              Monday 14th  July                                                              

Raising your Child's RQ (Resilience Quotient)

William G. Nicoll, Ph.D. & Monica A. Nicoll, Ph.D.

Research evidence now clearly indicates that it is NOT IQ, Self-Esteem, nor School Grades that best determine success.  Rather, it is your RQ (Resilience Quotient) that best determines your child's academic, career, social and relationship success in life. Learn practical parenting strategies for empowering your child(ren) by fostering a 'High RQ' that enables them to realize their full potential in life. Resilience involves the ability to “bounce back” from the hard knocks in life.
                                                              Wednesday 16th July                                                         

Raising your Marital RQ (Resilience Quotient)

Monica A. Nicoll, Ph.D. & William G. Nicoll, Ph.D.

Learn practical strategies for increasing your Marital RQ and developing a socially-emotionally intelligent marriage relationship.  Resilience involves the ability to not only establish a positive, fulfilling relationship, but also the ability to "bounce back" after the inevitable relationship obstacles, stressors and conflicts that arise from time to time and continue moving forward with an even stronger relationship.

From our experience last year, we look forward to Bill’s and Monica’s academic yet practical and indeed humorous presentation on this very important topic of RQ which is being considered today among counsellors and therapists as very relevant in child upbringing and marital relationships. The sessions will be interactive so that participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Married couples, parents, grandparents, family councillors and practitioners in the caring profession are all encouraged to attend.

Dates: 14th and 16th July 2014 at 7.00 pm (registration at 6.30 pm
Time : 7.00 -- 9.00 pm
Place : Genesis2 - 1, Oratory Street, Naxxar
