St Peters is proud to present the Life Symposium Series 2018, which covers a range of topics by highly‑regarded presenters. Parents, caregivers, and members of the wider community are invited to attend.


This symposium aims to give parents an insight into Positive Psychology and the work of Martin Seligman with a particular focus on Seligman’s PERMA model for wellbeing.

Parents will learn strategies to enhance subjective wellbeing and other positive psychology interventions for their day-to-day life with their children. Consisting of Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment, PERMA offers a workable framework to address our approach to wellbeing.

This symposium will enable participants to reflect on the PERMA model with regard their own life in their role as a parent, partner, work colleague, or friend. Everyone who attends will receive access to an online resource with further self-directed learning opportunities.
