Castleisland Library is looking forward to welcoming Dr. Mary O’Kane, Lecturer in Psychology, Early Childhood Studies and Education on Friday, October 4th. at 10am.

Dr. O’Kane will address issues such as: Supporting Self Confidence, Independence and Resilience.

“These three aspects of development are key in preparing children for so many aspects of their lives both as young children and in supporting children as they transition into adulthood,” according to Dr. O’Kane.

“Teenagers are under so much pressure today, building these strong supports in childhood can help them to negotiate difficulties later in life,” she said.

Dr. O’Kane explains the interaction between those three aspects and offers practical advice on how to support children in these important areas.

Castleisland Library can be contacted on: 066 71 63403.
