For over twenty years, Dr. Gerry Fewster ran the largest privately operated treatment centre for troubled children and their families in Canada. He has written extensively on children’s mental health issues and is currently an associate professor in the Department of Applied Psychology at the University of Calgary. In his book, "Don't Let Your Kids be Normal," Dr. Fewster offers an in-depth developmental perspective on adult-child relationships from pre-conception onwards. Dr. Fewster believes that all children have the inherent resources to create purposeful and meaningful lives but this potential can only be unlocked through their experiences with self-conscious adults, particularly during the early years. Rather than offer alternative simplistic prescriptions, he invites individuals examine their existing beliefs and assumptions and create options that promote the growth and well-being of both adult and child. The underlying message is that until we find new ways to relate to one another, our future on this planet will remain precarious. Learn more at:
