    Taming of the Crew: Understanding and Coping with Childhood Aggression in the Context of Home and Family II

    Wednesday, March 11, 2015
    8:00 PM

    "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.

    FREE. ALL ARE WELCOME.

Presently she is Director of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. In 1975 until 1986 she established and ran, at Montefiore Medical Center, an observational nursery for research on gender differences in early development.
