Event description

Description

Hosted by River NYC, this 2 day program teaches parents and caregivers how to Emotion Coach children in 5 simple steps in a low key and relaxed environment.

By increasing emotional awareness and communication skills, this program improves your emotional responsiveness and, in turn, creates emotionally intelligent children. Each session will include watching video of informative discussion from Drs. John and Julie Gottman, along with invaluable “Try This” exercises and discussion time. After completing the program you’ll have a good understanding of what emotional intelligence is, why it’s important, and how to use the 5 key steps to help establish a solid emotional foundation for your child.

Emotion Coaching is based on Dr. John Gottman’s research on emotional intelligence. Dr. John Gottman studied families for over twenty years to learn which kids were developing successfully and which were not. He measured how well the children performed in school, observed how well they related to their peers, and interviewed them to see how appropriately they behaved socially and how they related to their parents. His team kept finding the same results: children who were Emotion Coached were more successful as adults on measures like peer friendships, gainful employment, and academic performance than were children parented in other ways. Dr. Julie Gottman is the Co-Founder and President of The Gottman Institute. A highly respected clinical psychologist, she is sought internationally by media and organizations as an expert advisor on parenting issues.
