Anger & Eruptions: Understanding anger in our children and what to do about it
With Dr Vanessa Lapointe
We are pleased to be hosting Canadian author of Discipline Without Damage, parenting educator and registered psychologist Dr Vanessa Lapointe presenting her first seminars in Australia.
In this presentation, Dr Vanessa will be talking about children and anger.
Anger in our children is one of those emotions that often takes us by surprise, and indeed, provokes interesting responses out of us as parents. Where does anger come from? When is anger a problem? What does anger have to do with brain development? Understanding anger and a child’s needs when anger erupts out of them is central to ensuring that anger is actually a positive aspect of our children’s growth rather than hurtful or damaging.
By helping us make sense of the emotional pathways that lead to angry explosions, Dr Vanessa makes it is easier for us as parents to land on responses that are calming and facilitative of brilliant growth for the developing brain.
Dr Vanessa Lapointe is in Australia to present at the Raising Children Who Shine: Exploring Childhood From Toddlers to 10-year-olds conferences, hosted by Maggie Dent, and happening in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney in March 2018. Find out more.
