Connect's Annual Lecture 2019: Carol Craig

19th March 2019

Our Annual Lecture 2019 was delivered on 14 March at Dundee's Discovery Point by Carol Craig, chief executive of the Centre for Confidence and Wellbeing and author of Creating Confidence: A Handbook for Professionals Working With Young People, The Tears that Made the Clyde: Well-being in Glasgow, and The Scots' Crisis of Confidence.

Carol's very well-received lecture Learning to Cope: How Do Children Become Resilient? posed challenges about the emphasis on children's feelings and the notion that 'good parenting' particularly in the 1980s and 1990s focussed on making sure children didn't have negative experiences, leading to a lack of resilience and an inability to cope with negative feelings, frustration or challenge.
