Understanding the Emotional World of Children and Youth in Challenging Times @ Online

Catulpa Community Support Services’ FASD Key Supports and Services presents a free virtual information session:

Understanding the Emotional World of Children and Youth in Challenging Times

This information session is for parents and caregivers of children and youth with FASD.

We are all experiencing a gamut of emotions as we live through these challenging times. This presentation will help the you to understand the key emotions that your children (and you) are living and the effect that these can have on behaviour and on learning. Adding to all this – we are fast approaching the holiday season, a time of increased emotion in even the most predictable of times. This presentation will discuss ways in which to effectively navigate the extra excitement of this season.

How we see behaviour can change the way in which we react to it. And how we react, can in turn, help our children to move forward.

We often confuse good behaviour with good development and that is not always the case. Understanding what is going on in the child or youth’s emotional world can make a difference both for them and for you as their parents.

Speaker Eva de Gosztonyi is a psychologist, and has worked for over 45 years in schools across Canada. She is the Co-ordinator of the Centre of Excellence for Behaviour Management, a support to the ten English School Boards of Quebec, helping them to provide effective interventions for students with behavioural challenges. The interventions that Eva suggests are based in neuroscience, they are trauma-informed and are congruent with the attachment-based developmental approach of Dr. Gordon Neufeld. Eva is a member of the Faculty of the Neufeld Institute and is an authorized presenter of the Neufeld paradigm. Her aim is to help adults make sense of the children in their care in so they can create the conditions in which their children can grow and thrive.
