Dr. Vanessa LaPointe Workshop

Updated: Oct 7, 2020




A Zoom webinar brought to you by Okanagan Foster Parents Association, Interior Community Services, and Foster Parent Support Service Society: Anger & Eruptions: Understanding anger in our children and what to do about it. Anger in our children is one of those emotions that often takes us by surprise, and indeed, provokes interesting responses out of us as parents. Where does the anger come from? When is anger a problem? What does anger have to do with brain development? Understanding anger and a child's needs when anger erupts out of them is central to ensuring that anger is actually a positive aspect of our children's growth rather than hurtful or damaging. When the emotional pathways that lead to angry explosions can be made sense of, it is easier to land on responses that are calming and facilitative of brilliant growth for the developing brain.
