How to help your kids when they flip their lids!

Dr Andrew Wake is a child and adolescent psychiatrist in both the public and private health systems. He has worked in a range of settings, from urban suburbs to rural townships and remote Aboriginal communities and has recently released a book 'The Good Enough Parent’.

Do you worry about your children? Are you concerned about their development and your contribution as a parent? Do you think you're setting an example or do you find yourself tearing out your hair when you’re confronted by an emotional outburst or tantrum?

Dr Andrew Wake has extensive experience in giving talks and seminars to health professionals, parent groups, schools, child protection agencies and the police. He has a keen interest in helping parents and care giving adults to understand the emotional life and needs of the child in their life and helping them to provide 'enough' of the things they need.

He has lectured at Melbourne University, presented at national and international conferences, and undertaken numerous speaking engagements at mental health clinics, schools, child protection units, and parent groups on various topics including parenting, understanding and managing strong emotions and tricky relationships, child-development, adolescent sexuality, and the effects of childhood trauma.
