Heart Matters - Science of Emotion With Heather Ferguson

Heart Matters: The Science of Emotion

There is much focus today on children’s emotions. 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.

New revelations about the nature of emotion have shed fresh light on the pivotal role of feelings in play, brain development, discipline issues, anxiety problems, maturational processes, behaviour problems, attention problems, mental health issues and much more. In this course, Dr. Neufeld distils the current scientific knowledge on emotion to three basic laws and discusses the implications of each of these laws for parenting and teaching as well as the treatment of children. This course is powerful in the insight it provides as well as the changes it inspires.

5 Tuesdays, May 17-June 14, 2016, 7-9 pm
