"Taming the Crew: Understanding and Coping with Childhood Aggression in the Context of Home and Family" with
Wendy Olesker, PhD
Dr. Olesker will look at aggression from a developmental perspective. She will discuss the unfolding manifestations of aggression, typical developmental conflicts, and the role of the caregiver in helping children understand, channel, express, and contain anger as they grow. She will address the differences between normal and pathological aggression. Key ideas include: changing expectations and ways of handling as the child grows, the shaping influence of early experience, facilitating the development of conscience, and the importance of gentle, consistent limit setting.
