In this week’s WAVE session for the Middle and Senior Schools, we welcomed Dr Lev Fridgant. Dr Fridgant is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist working in Launceston. He explained the concepts of resilience and grit and introduced the students to the “Grit Scale”. Dr Fridgant referred to the work of Carol Dweck, a Psychology Professor at Standford, throughout his presentation.

We thank him for his time and hope he will present to us again in the near future.
