Heart Matters: What to Do With a Child's Feelings
There is much focus today on children's emotions. Constructs like emotional intelligence, emotional self-regulation, emotional well-being and social emotional learning are being bandied about like never before. There is even a new branch of psychology called Positive Psychology with a focus on happiness and how to achieve it. Emotion, long dismissed as a nuisance factor, is now confirmed to be at the core of child development and well-being.
What are the implications for raising children? How can we ensure healthy hearts and emotions? How do we teach our children the language of the heart? Should we discourage "negative" emotions and should we be encouraging our children to "calm down"? What role does the mind play in matters of the heart?
In this 2-hour evening address Dr. Neufeld, an internationally respected developmental psychologist, will address these questions and more, bringing some needed clarity to the plethora of confusing information that is bombarding parents today.
