"Taming of The Crew: Understanding and Coping with Childhood Aggression in the Context of Home and Family II"
with Wendy Olesker, Ph.D.
While developmental underpinnings will be alluded to in the development of normal and pathological aggression, the focus of the talk will be on the manifestations and handling of aggression in latency age children and adolescents. Discussion will include a look at changing expectations as the child grows, facilitating the development of conscience and internal self controls, and practical approaches to healthy channeling of aggression for the promotion of growth.
