Presented by Dr. Roy Chan
Suitable for parents of children aged 4 to 12 years old.
Anger, like happiness, is just another emotion that we all experience. However, there may be times when anger feels like it might overwhelm our relationships with our children. When an angry situation escalates, we may turn to rewards/ punishment or disengagement in hopes of defusing the situation as quickly as possible. However, there are other effective ways to think about and manage anger at home.
This workshop explores how we can utilise the ideas of holding and containing from psychodynamic psychology to understand how our child’s needs evolve over time and the underlying reasons for their anger. It is highly recommended to pre-read the brief article “Dealing with Angry Outbursts in Children“, to provide you with the context that this workshop will be based on.
You will also be introduced to the Core Conflictual Relational Theme (CCRT), a technique which is useful when speaking to your children about emotional situations.
Parents can expect to gain the following knowledge:
