Health and Well-Being for Children and Families
Our 4th Annual Gateways Conference with Dr. Adam Blanning will focus on the following overall topic: How do we create healthy boundaries, so that we as adults can both protect children and promote their exploration of the world at the same time?
Friday Evening Keynote Talk:
How to Help Build Moral Sensing and Healthy Communication
Every child learns how to function in the world through doing: how to move, how to talk, what's allowed and what is not. How can you help guide a child in this process, without lecturing him or her (which really doesn't work!)?
Saturday Morning Keynote Talk:
A "Support Session" for Overcoming the Parent Guilt-Trip
Why do people talk so much about rhythm and routine, warmth, less screen-time, and all the other things you're supposed to be doing with children? How can we make parenting sustainable, not overwhelming?

About Dr. Adam Blanning
Adam Blanning, M.D., is a graduate of the University of Colorado's School of Medicine and he is Board-Certified in both Family Practice medicine and Anthroposophic medicine. Dr. Blanning's training in Anthroposophic medicine has taken place in the United States and in Europe. He is an award-winning scholar and teacher, having served on the faculty of the New York Medical College and the University of Colorado's School of Medicine. He is also a member of the Board of the Physicians' Association for Anthroposophic Medicine, and he teaches in the PAAM annual doctors' training program. But Adam is probably best-loved for his quiet listening, flexibility, and kind manner.
Adam currently works in private practice in Denver as an Anthroposophic physician. As well, he works as a consultant to Waldorf schools, and as a teacher and lecturer – not only in Anthroposophic medicine, but also in remedial work within Early Childhood education, in therapeutic painting, and in Eurythmy. Adam lives in Denver with his wife and their two young daughters, who love to dig in the garden with him. It's also interesting and inspiring to note that Adam is himself a graduate of the Denver Waldorf School.
