|The Skirball Center - home to the amazing|
Noah's Ark exhibit, fun family entertainment
and great lecture series.
Next month there is a new lecture at The Skirball entitled Using Emotional Intelligence To Raise Compassionate And Resilient Children. Now that is totally up my alley and I'm excited to be attending. For those of you in the Los Angeles area, I thought you might be interested as well. Here are some of the details:
"In this seminar, participants learn to help their children become emotionally intelligent and find ways to express their feelings authentically and appropriately.
Dr. Daniel Siegel is the creator of Mindsight, a powerful and creative way to train the mind to see itself. In doing so, practitioners develop a transformative level of self-awareness, understand their inner lives with more clarity, and re-wire the brain to create more compassion and understanding in their relationships.
Through a keynote presentation and multiple workshops, participants will learn how to use Mindsight with their children to help them discover their feelings as a source of strength. Techniques for cultivating resilience and well-being will be explored. The seminar will also enable parents and caregivers to strengthen bonds with children, leading to stronger families and communities.
Designed for parents, expectant parents, mental health care practitioners, and teachers, the program includes the keynote lecture and two ninety-minute workshops."
|Understanding yourself and your|
own childhood can help you be
a better parent.
In addition to Dr. Siegel as the keynote speaker, there are also a dozen amazing workshops offered out of which you get to pick two to attend! Among the topics being offered are:
- Sibling Rivalry: Teaching Children Empathy For Their Brothers And Sisters (taught by the terrific Dr. Pamela Varady)
- Raising Emotionally Healthy Twins (taught by the great Dr. Joan Friedman)
- The Father's Unique Role In Family Life
- Learning To Set Limits And Create Healthy Boundaries For Life
- The Healing Power Of Imagination: How To Transform Stress And Anxiety Into Joy And Success
