Seminar Series on Personal Growth and Parent EducationThe HKIER hosts the Seminar Series on Personal Growth and Parent Education on a continual basis. The Seminar Series has made the Institute a major avenue for supporting local school workers and parent educators in their efforts to strengthen and enrich individual and family well-being to its fullest extent. Through the seminars, the HKIER fosters the repositioning of parent education within the more general educational aim of enhancing the growth and development of the parents and children. On this basis, the Seminar Series presents fruitful explorations on the contemporary issues around family and parenthood that are of particular concern to stakeholders in education and the caring field.
