March 1 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. – “Books, Brains, and Behavior: Research-based Strategies for Understanding and Supporting Your Child”
Dr. Leah Hunter, PA Licensed Psychologist
Decades of research shows that when children have skills to cope with stressful situations, it positively impacts their learning, emotions, and behavior in the long run. Understanding what’s going on in your child’s brain when they encounter big feelings or a life change can help us know how to help them cope. This session will focus on practical applications of current research findings related to emotional development in childhood, with an emphasis on take-home techniques to improve emotion regulation (for example, “social stories”). Dr. Leah Hunter is a toddler mom, licensed psychologist, and researcher at the University of Pittsburgh who works with parents and children aged birth – 5.
