Teach Me to Think: Fostering Children’s Social Emotional Learning Development

January 19, 2017

Presented by Stephanie Colvin-Roy, Special Projects Managing Coordinator, Center for Schools and Communities, Camp Hill, Pa.

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, I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) and the parent program, Raising a Thinking Child (RaTC) developed by Dr. Myrna Shure. The ICPS program teaches young children how to think, not what to think, so they are more able to make responsible decisions. Participants will learn how the ICPS and RaTC programs can be utilized to enhance parenting programs and youth social emotional learning development, strategies for dialoguing with children to teach them the skills necessary for problem solving. They will also explore how the RaTC program may enhance parenting skills and foster youth social emotional development.
