Would You Teach a Fish to Climb a Tree? - March 7-8, 2020 - Mumbai, India

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Albert Einstein


This class, based on the book by the same name, is designed to create the space that allows you and the children in your life to have much greater ease in all areas from communication to behavior, confidence to joy and much more. We invite you to empower your children to access the gifts and capacities they have and to create what they’re truly capable of.


"Some of my favorite kids are the ones that never fit in, that were always so different, and people never quite knew what to do with..."  Anne Maxwell, LCSW


Have you ever noticed how some kids are just different?  They look different.  They act different.  They communicate differently.  They don’t respond the way other kids do.  Many of them are labeled with “disorders” such as ADD, ADHD, OCD and autism. They are told they need to change to become more like other kids, to fit in.  And when they don’t, they can find themselves excluded, isolated, judged, ostracized, bullied, made fun of … the list goes on. 

Some kids are different all the time, no matter what anyone says or does. There is nothing wrong with them … they are simply different.

Anne Maxwell, LCSW, RPT-S is a psychotherapist who has worked for over 25 years with children who struggle with not fitting in, with being different, with being labeled with “disorders.” She has developed a unique approach for these children, their parents and family members that allows them to shift from dismay, distress and worry to being able to change all of that, and to create a different way of being that works better for them.



This 2-day class is open to anyone who has or works with or knows any of these kids.

In this class, we will have a look at:

  • Myths about these kids
  • A different perspective … who they are and who they are not
  • Parenting these kids
  • Communication by and with them
  • These kids and their bodies
  • Developmental changes
  • Advocating for them

 You will be given practical tools you can use immediately to create more ease for you and for them.
