Strategies To Support Your Child’s Emotional Regulation: Online Talk + Preview
Children can have clinical depression and anxiety, as well other psychological conditions. But how can parents and educators spot telltale signs, as well as help to support a child’s emotional dysregulation?
Sometimes, children may present worrying symptoms such as continuous feelings of hopelessness, uncontrollable worries, or being out of control during outbursts. They may use the toilet often, be tense and fidgety, or have physical complaints such as headaches that don’t respond to treatment.
These signs ought to be examined, especially if a child’s normal daily functioning, including relationships and activities within the family or at school are beginning to be disrupted.
In this talk by Principal Psychologist Bernice Lim, learn communication skills, and how parents and educators can support a child during difficult moments. Due to their lack of cognitive development, children need adults’ guidance in identifying their needs and appropriately expressing their emotions.
Apart from seeking professional help, parents and educators can help young ones develop self awareness and learn what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour. Discover how to build rapport with children, teach them self-regulation techniques, as well as tips to set boundaries and structure for them.
At this Child Psychology talk:
  1. Learn to identify the symptoms of a child’s mood disorders
  2. Understand the impact of emotional dysregulation
  3. Discover ways to provide better emotional support for children
The talk will be followed by the Course Preview of Child Psychology programmes.
