This event is brought to you by the Tahunanui Community Centre and is this year’s main fundraising event.

Many of us are trying to understand how to raise children in a completely new family landscape. More and more of us are living in blended families and we’re also all facing new issues like technologically dependent teenagers, a tidal wave of alcohol and drugs, and a whole pile of other issues our parents’ generation didn’t have to even consider. In answer to all of these complex issues, Nigel presents an evening of evidence-based opinion and simplifying common sense. Just because the issues are complicated, doesn’t mean that the solutions have to be.

Nigel has had a varied and colourful career which spans all the way from a brief episode as a busker in the eighties, to over two decades working as a clinical psychologist, and more recently as an author and documentary maker. In his clinical career he worked in sex offender treatment programmes, schools, alcohol and drug treatment programmes, prisons, and with many thousands of families.

He also consulted with the police, child youth and family, and the prison service. In more recent years he’s written books on both parenting and his work as a forensic psychologist which have now been published in nineteen countries. His television career has included documentaries on subjects ranging from parenting, to inequality, sugar, alcohol, antarctic science, and blowing stuff up. In 2012, he was appointed as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

This is an alcohol free event.
