About This Course

Published 4/2014 English

Course Description

"Gabriel proposes a change in the educational paradigm by focusing on students' parents, suggesting a highly positive kind of involvement in the educational process, making them reflect on the nature of their beliefs, exposing and proposing positive changes to the cognitive biases, preconceptions, equivocal involvements, misinformation, and most importantly the projection of parental emotions onto their children. Ultimately, his work focuses on the often ignored - and fragile - link between the student, parent, and team of educators. Extremely useful and arising from a beautiful insight!" - Dr. Isaac Joukhadar

"A clear and effective work, with the goal to motivate parents and children to execute an efficient strategy of Psychopedagogy, in the search for the success of students. Considering the psychology of today's youth, this work approaches methods that enhance discipline, affection, motivation, work ethic, and a balanced equation between study and hard work." - Dr. Roseli Rodolfo
