Workshop Description: Children's challenging behaviors are often the result of a mismatch of temperament between adults and children. How can we be more aware of this mismatch and what can be done about it? Understanding our own behavior and a child’s development is critical to ensuring that every child we relate to and interact with is visible, valued and supported in their own way. Together, we will discover the layers of possibilities waiting to unfold and the strengths each child brings to this world. These will be revealed through a research-based model of temperament that honors the differences among us.
