Teach me to think: Assisting parents to foster their child's social emotional learning development


November 5, 2014

Webinar 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. EDT


Social emotional learning is the way in which a child experiences, expresses and manages emotions. This webinar will familiarize participants with a social emotional learning program called, Raising a Thinking Child (RaTC) developed by Dr. Myrna Shure. This program teaches young children how to think, not what to think, so they are more able to make responsible decisions. Participants will discuss how the RaTC program can be utilized to enhance parenting programs and youth social emotional learning development.


Objectives - participants will be able to:

  • See how the RaTC program may enhance parenting skills and foster youth social emotional development.
  • Learn strategies for dialoguing with children to teach them the skills necessary for problem solving.
