SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING

From an early age, kids are developing their brains as they make sense of their experiences.  The brain physically changes throughout the course of our lives, not just in childhood. Experience molds and shapes our brains.  Findings from various areas in developmental psychology suggest that our experiences including, the music we hear, the people we love, the books we read, the kind of discipline we receive, affects the way our brain develops (Siegel & Bryson, 2012).   To develop a resilient, well – integrated brain, parents and teachers can talk to children about their experiences. For example, parents might talk to children about their feelings to help develop their emotional intelligence. New findings in the field of neuroplasticity support the perspective that parents can directly shape their child’s brain according to what experiences they offer (Siegel & Bryson, 2012).  At this session, we will discuss family oriented interactions that will help children learn about relationships.
