Join Dr. Gordon Neufeld in Warsaw

Ed. note: Homeschool parents in Poland extend an invitation—particularly for those in Europe—to benefit from an upcoming event with renowned developmental scientist Dr. Gordon Neufeld. Learn more about Dr. Neufeld via his website or by watching his keynote address at the GHEC 2012 in Berlin.

As a co-organizers of the event “Dr. Gordon Neufeld Warsaw 2016,” we have the great honour and pleasure to invite you to two seminars by international authority on child development Gordon Neufeld, Ph.D., that will be held on Thursday, October 6th in Warsaw, Poland at the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) in the main hall. Tickets are available for purchase here. Please tell others!

Dr. Neufeld is coming to Warsaw as part of publicity for his book Hold On to Your Kids (Publisher: Galaktyka), which was finally translated into Polish! This is an unprecedented occasion to see and hear Dr. Gordon Neufeld live for the first time in Poland.

The seminars are not specifically directed at homeschoolers for the reason of including everybody concerned about our youth. However, homeschoolers from Warsaw and surrounding areas and countries are most welcome, as they are the parents who live and breathe attachment every single day of their lives.

Hold On to Your Kids explains the causes of the modern breakdown of parental influence—and demonstrates ways to “reattach” to sons and daughters, establish the proper hierarchy in the home, make kids feel safe and understood, and earn back your children’s loyalty and love. This updated edition also specifically addresses the unprecedented parenting challenges posed by the rise of digital devices and social media. By helping to reawaken instincts innate to us all, Dr. Neufeld and the book’s co-author Gabor Maté, MD, will empower parents to be what nature intended: a true source of contact, security, and warmth for their children.

There will also be a pre-seminar book event on October 5th at a charming bookstore. At this event, Dr. Neufeld will give a short lecture on the book and its topics. The event provides you with a chance to get a personalized copy of the book that has famously been translated into 20 languages (and counting!) all over the world.

So, please, help us spread the good news about the events with your family and friends who might be in Warsaw at that time and follow us on social media. For two years a team of very dedicated people have worked to make the events happen in our beautiful capital.  Please consider joining us this fall in Warsaw to celebrate the sweet fruit of our hard work.
