Katrina Alvir BA BEd(Hons) DipPsych
Katrina Alvir has taught and mentored high school girls and their parents for over 18 years in Australia and abroad. She studied a Bachelor of Arts in English and History and a Postgraduate Bachelor of Teaching with Honours. She has recently completed a Diploma of Positive Psychology in Melbourne. As a trained teacher and mentor Katrina has extensive experience in working directly with adolescent girls in schools, as well as working closely with their parents. Katrina is passionate about supporting parents in one of their most challenging and important roles – guiding their daughters through their adolescent years.
Her current project is REAL (Real Excellence & Attitude for Life) – a character and virtues program she is creating and implementing at Tangara School for Girls. This program is for girls in years 7-10. Katrina is incorporating the science of character and strengths research, positive psychology interventions and the research in neuroscience and brain plasticity into the REAL program. She hopes to promote a more engaging and compelling case for young people to live a life of virtue, grow in character and ultimately live happier lives.
Katrina is also a workshop facilitator for All.u.re. All.u.re is an educational organisation run by a group of young women based in Sydney and Melbourne. All.u.re aims to help girls value thhttp://all.u.re/emselves from the inside out, by running highly interactive workshops in areas such as holistic beauty, genuine friendship, social media and identity. Katrina sees fashion as a means of self-expression and believes in promoting a healthy appreciation, rather than obsession, with beauty.
Katrina has presented to girls, parents, mentors and educators in Sydney, Melbourne and internationally.
