What to do with Children’s Feelings? The Science of Emotion

Dates: Thursday, May 7 to June 4
Host: Neufeld Institute Virtual Campus, online course
Time: 10 to 11 am
Registration: For Faculty and Practionner students at the Neufeld Institute

Constructs like emotional intelligence, emotional self-regulation, emotional well-being and emotional social learning are being bandied about like never before. Emotion, long dismissed as a nuisance factor, is now confirmed to be at the core of development and well-being. What are the implications for raising and teaching children? How can we ensure healthy hearts and what does heart hygiene look like? How do we teach our children the language of the heart? Should we be discouraging negative emotions’ and encouraging our children to calm down? This presentation will bring clarity to the plethora of confusing information bombarding parents, child care providers, educators, and health professionals today.


Dr. Deborah MacNamara is on Faculty at the Neufeld Institute and presents, teaches, and writes on all facets of child and adolescent development based on the relational-developmental approach of Gordon Neufeld. She is also in private practice where she offers counselling services to parents and professionals in making sense of learning, behavioural, and developmental issues in kids.
