Madhavi Nawana Parker is a published author of social emotional literacy programs including, ‘The Resilience and Wellbeing Toolbox’ by Routledge Education London. Madhavi is driven by the value of young people feeling a sense of belonging and connection. Healthy relationships are at the core of a person’s wellbeing and good social emotional literacy provides the platform for academic and lifelong achievement. Madhavi strives to teach these skills to young people in her private practice. Through her training workshops, she also guides parents and professionals to develop simple and practical ways to support young people to be more resilient and socially-emotionally skilled.

The constantly changing world of technology and social media has meant that many young people are interacting using text messages or screens instead of talking and playing face to face. Too much time interacting this way can rob them of the opportunity to build the necessary skills to get along well with others. Research has found that social emotional literacy can be taught and provides young people with ways to build essential skills to be more confident, calm, likeable and emotionally skilled.

Routledge Education released Madhavi’s latest book, ‘The Resilience and Wellbeing Toolbox’ in late 2016 which focuses on teaching problem solving, persistence, stress management, goal setting, empathy and much more. It is already being used around the world as an easy to implement program that offers Role Plays, discussions, games, activities and worksheets to build skills that make life easier for kids. and

Madhavi is a keynote and guest speaker on the topics of social emotional literacy, positive discipline, resilience and wellbeing. She presents to a wide audience including teachers, educators, allied health professionals and parents.
