FaithCARE Talk: Believing In Change
Tuesday, 28 May 2019, 7.30pm, Wesley Hall (Attic Level)
Some of us might be familiar with Carol Dweck’s work on growth versus fixed mindsets. This talk explores questions such as: What are the implications of these two contrasting mindsets for our spiritual lives, relationships, academic studies, and work? How does our relationship with God reflect a fixed or growth mindset? What are practical strategies for parents and educators to cultivate a growth mindset in children?
