Dr. Peg Oliveira is a child development expert and will lead a parent workshop on behavior

About this Event

Challenging behaviors can be important signals from children expressing needs that they can’t put into words. Parents and teachers must know and be ready to decipher the messages in behaviors, and understand their potential causes in order to lessen these disruptions. Learn about executive function skills, including self-regulation, and how they impact child behavior as well as the caregiver’s own ability to cope and deal with challenging behaviors.

In this workshop you will:

• Learn the neuroscience behind a meltdown

• Learn how trauma impacts the brain and behavior

• Learn how to read child behavior as messages for unmet social emotional needs
