About this Event

This Narrative 4 Ireland webinar is hosted by best selling author and educational psychologist Dr Michele Borba author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World and her new book Thrivers. The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine.


Data shows that today’s youth are the loneliest, most stressed, and risk-averse on record. Though well-educated, they are failing to launch in real life. New research says seven traits are key in helping kids thrive. Dr Borba shares details about each necessary trait, from perseverance to curiosity and will explain how all seven traits combine to ensure happiness and success in life. All traits are teachable. You’ll not only learn about research showing why each trait is critical for academic success and personal success but also how these traits help to improve mental health and resilience.


Narrative 4 Ireland is a registered charity that trains and supports post-primary schools teachers to deliver an evidence-based programme in the classroom that teaches empathy and resilience through a focus on connection. N4 Ireland replicated the programme from a successful US school programme.
