PRESENTER: Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, R. Psych. (#1856)
When your child is threatening a meltdown in the grocery aisle, is it really possible to keep your cool, get the behavior turned around, and support healthy development, all at the same time?! Parents, caregivers and big people of all kinds will discover how discipline affects children’s development, why our reactions to our children’s behavior should reinforce connection instead of introduce more upset, and why the disciplinary strategies that may have been used on us as children are not the ones that children really need. In addition, you’ll learn:
- How the concept of “childhood” has been understood in different ways historically and why we must understand it anew today.
- The basic and impact-ful truth behind Dr. Vanessa’s mantra “See it, feel it, be it.”
- The foundation of a healthy, effective approach to discipline that respects your child’s developmental needs… and works!
Dr. Vanessa’s book by this same title will be released in January 2016! As a special offer to all those who attend this workshop, with proof of book pre-ordering (just print and bring your receipt from Amazon!) Dr. Vanessa will sign book plates and will provide online access to a free webinar in 2016.
