‘What if we have misinterpreted what children really need for most of human history?’ – Dr Maxine Therese

In today’s world we see in children an increasing incidence of anxiety, depression, loss of purpose and behavioural challenges. We see parents, teachers and caregivers time poor and often overwhelmed with guilt.

Dr Maxine Therese’s work is vital for anyone who has the responsibility of raising children. In an ideal world, that would be all of us.

Join us as Maxine shares her unique research-based and practical insights into how children are best nurtured and how we as adults can learn about ourselves as we grow with our children.

Meet Dr Maxine Therese

Maxine’s work is groundbreaking, and steeped in the rigours of academia. Her PhD has been celebrated by institutions and her thought leading book, The Push For A Child Philosophy: What Children Really Need You To Know is currently being published by Cambridge Scholars Press and will be released later this year.

Dr. Maxine Therese is the founder of Childosophy, a complete philosophy of children’s needs and wellbeing for parents, teachers and practitioners working with children.  Maxine’s professional, academic and personal life has been guided by a push to find better ways to assist the little ones. Allowing children to know thyself is her purpose, and she sees this as a vital process to the further evolution of humanity. Maxine also speaks at various events, conducts practitioner trainings in Childosophy and consults with children and adults in her Geelong based practice. Maxine loves having conversations that lead to even bigger questions and is also very proudly, the mother of two adult sons.

Talking Sticks is delighted to present Dr Maxine Therese’s work publicly for the first time. Three events will take place in Melbourne. Tickets are strictly limited to 200 for each event, book early to avoid disappointment.

Childosophy | Affirming Educators,

Accredited Professional Development

Friday 25 November, 9.30am – 3.30pm

This day supports teachers in the classroom to consider the whole child, to better understand children’s behaviours and symptoms that in turn complement the purpose of a teacher’s vocation.

The training offers practical tools to use in the classroom and gives you greater insight into the interactions that you have with children. When educators become aware of the invisible and energetic exchanges that occur between the child and their world: and how these inform and affect each other in school and beyond, they can shift the way they relate with children. Transformative learning happens when teachers can quickly identify the children’s needs and set about to find the support needed to meet them in a simple way. A variety of common childhood classroom challenges are framed within the Foundational Needs Model, incorporating the whole self – embracing body, mind and spirit – based upon many years of research and clinical experiences where Maxine has noticed patterns emerge over time. The model helps teachers appreciate when a child’s particular needs are unmet that the child will respond to the learning environment in a variety of ways. This professional development offers a new way of attuning with the children in your class and allows you to identify any blocks to learning and socialising.

Uniquely, the day will also support your own inner enquiry that allows for a deeper self-understanding, which of course further benefits the children entrusted to your care.

Meets Professional Standard for Teachers 1.5, 1.6 & 4.1.

Childosophy | Growing With Our Children Seminar

Friday 25 November, 6pm – 7.30pm

An introduction to the groundbreaking Foundational Needs Model for Children, this evening talk designed to inspire and support parents, grandparents and caregivers.

As parents, grandparents and caregivers, we are bombarded with theories, advice and programs on how to better parent. The lesser-touted advice is ‘know thyself’, and whilst Dr Maxine Therese has a knack for making this easy, her work is steeped in academic and practice-based research. How does knowing ourselves position us to better care for children for the greatest potential to be realised in all of us, and is there a model we can easily understand to help us do that?

Dr. Maxine Therese’s research on the Foundational Needs Model for children will inspire a shift in how you view the relationships you hold with children, as well as how you feel about your own childhood. This evening starts a vital conversation offering deep insights regarding what children really need. Maxine’s work will take you deeper into your potential, as she beautifully weaves in research-based psychology, chakra theory, family systems theory, philosophy, physiology, neuroscience and epigenetics.

This will be an evening that provokes much thought, emotion, and most of all, inspiration about how we can be more present with children and grow ourselves at the same time.

Childosophy | Parenting Potential Workshop, Growing With Our Children

Saturday 26 November, 10am – 4pm

A full day immersive workshop for parents into the Foundational Needs Model for Children. The workshop is designed to support parents to reach their full parenting potential, to develop their own emotional intelligence and to support joyful parenting.

Have you felt that you want to access greater potential in your role as a parent, and yet are exhausted by the reality of the day-to-day demands of your children? We are bombarded with information about how to parent, and yet we do not often consider the child might know more than we do about what they need.

The lesser-touted advice is ‘know thyself’, and whilst Dr Maxine Therese has a knack for making this easy, her work is steeped in academic and practice-based research. How does knowing ourselves position us to better care for children so we all reach our full potential, and is there a model we can easily understand to help us do that?

Maxine’s work takes us deeper into the true gift of raising children, as she beautifully weaves in research-based psychology, chakra theory, family systems theory, philosophy, physiology, neuroscience and epigenetics.

This workshop supports an attunement with your child, which allows you to see that the many challenges of your child might be a refection of something you can become more aware of in yourself or in the child’s broader family patterning. The Foundational Needs Model is supported by years of research and clinical practice with many practical approaches by way of tools and tips that are shared during the day. You can begin immediately to cultivate your child’s needs whilst also realising your greatest potential as a parent.

Steeped in academic rigour, Dr Maxine Therese’s work is groundbreaking. Her PhD has been celebrated by institutions and her thought provoking book, The Push: Re-visiting Philosophies of Childhood is currently being published by Cambridge Scholars Press and will be released later this year.

“None of the current developmental models of childhood account for the natural push of the child to have their own potential recognised.”

Dr Maxine Therese

In Australia, 1 in 16 young Australians is experiencing depression and suicide is the biggest killer of young Australians and accounts for more young people’s deaths than car accidents.
