What triggers children’s anger, and what does anger in a child look like?
There are many reasons that might cause a child to be angry, such as a defence mechanism for their shame, or feelings of isolation.
While it’s normal for children to feel upset, sometimes their anger can become inappropriate. Adults who can recognise the warning signs of abnormal anger in children will know when to intervene.
For example, if a child is disruptive at school, often causes conflict at home, and is unable to get along with anyone, adults can learn to delve further into the cause of the child’s anger and offer guidance for the child.
In this Child Psychology talk, participants will learn the neuroscience of anger, and the stress response of children. They will discover ways to teach children to properly express and cope with anger.
Anger management strategies to calm down a child will be shared, and participants will be prompted to be aware of their emotions as well, to ensure that they can deal with a child’s tantrum in a mature way.
At this Child Psychology talk:
1) Understand the physiology and cognitive workings of anger
2) Identify what anger symptoms are abnormal
3) Discover strategies to guide children in their anger management
The talk will be followed by the Course Preview of Child Psychology programmes.
