I am really excited to be able to tell you that Avondale College has introduced study in Lifestyle Medicine. A postgraduate certificate and a postgraduate diploma in Lifestyle Medicine, by coursework, will be available starting 2nd semester 2015. These courses will be available entirely online.
The course coordinator is our very own Dr Darren Morton and the course content is absolutely first class. The subjects offered include:· Lifestyle Medicine - Past, Present, Future
Completing any four of these subjects will get you a postgraduate certificate and completing all eight of them will get you a postgraduate diploma. These papers will be offered two per semester, so that you can study part-time and will be available completely externally, so you can study from home, to complete this qualification. For anyone wanting to learn more about the theory and practice of Lifestyle Medicine these Avondale courses really are world-class.
I just wish that these degrees had been available when I was looking at postgraduate study!

Raising Emotionally Healthy Teenagers

Venue: Fox Valley Community Centre, 183a Fox Valley Road, Wahroonga, NSW (on the grounds of the Sydney Adventist Hospital)
Adolescence can be an exciting but challenging time for teens and their parents/care-givers! It demands new ways of relating to changing rules and divergent opinions. It can often be a time of turmoil, confusion and broken friendships. The counselling room can also be a challenging place for the adolescent and the therapist.
The 29th National Christian Family Conference will focus on key issues facing teens and those who care for them. Australian specialists will present the latest research in the fields of parenting, adolescent mental health, and the digital age and cyberspace-safety, as well as sharing important strategies that might assist teens and their carers in negotiating these potentially difficult years.
