Parent Webinar 17 - The development of emotional intelligence in primary school-aged children

ISDCN Online
06 Sep 2018
20180605

Much work has been done in the past decade to show that parents can help children to build-on their children’s developmental progress across their childhood. We know, for example, that children will develop cognitively to do increasingly more complex activities. Whole school curricula are based on children’s abilities at certain ages. But, what we are also learning is that parents can help children become more aware of their emotions and therefore they can be coached to tolerate and manage their emotions. This ability to wrestle with strong emotions is very important in helping children to learn better at school - something that has been demonstrated in the research on emotional intelligence over the past decade. In this webinar, Michael will explore the nature of emotional intelligence and how parents can act in ways to develop their child’s emotional intelligence. Michael Hawton, MAPS is a registered psychologist and a full member of the Australian Psychological Society. He is a former, trained primary school teacher. He is the main trainer for Parentshop, which has produced a suite of adult education training courses since 2006. Michael has authored two books: Talk Less Listen More – solutions for children’s difficult behaviour (2013) and Engaging Adolescents - holding tough conversations with teenagers (2017). His two books have sold over 65,000 copies worldwide and both have been translated into Mandarin. Michael ‘s parenting and teacher behaviour management programmes are listed on various compendia of child mental health websites, as evidenced-based approaches for parents and educators. He has worked with the UNFPA in Vietnam and for the New Oriental Technology & Education Group in China.
