Helping Young Children Flourish with Dr. MacNamara

Rest, Play, Grow: Helping Young Children Flourish
A Public Presentation with Dr. Deborah MacNamara

No one is more susceptible to being misunderstood than the preschooler. Precocious, brazen, obsessive, endearing, hysterical, impulsive, anxious, delightful, unreflective, dogmatic, generous, unstable, aggressive, resistant, compulsive, and anything but consistent – the preschooler could qualify for any number of personality and behaviour disorders. Unlike infants and toddlers, preschoolers actually bear a resemblance to grown-ups and therefore fool us into thinking that they are much more like us than they really are. Projecting our psychology onto them is a typical mistake.

This presentation will address commonly misunderstood preschooler behaviour including resistance, frustration, attachment, and impulsiveness.

Located at the JIBC New West Theatre, this public presentation is free, no reservations necessary.

Dr. Deborah MacNamara is a Clinical Counsellor, Developmentalist, and a best selling author.
