Event Description

AGGRESSION is one of the oldest and most challenging of human problems. There are many indications that this problem is escalating among our children. What tends to grab our attention is the more violating acts of aggression but what is truly alarming is the ground swell of attacking energy within and between our kids that erupts in their interaction, music, language, play, games and fantasies. In this seminar, aggression’s deep developmental roots will be exposed and the reasons why conventional approaches to the problem are so ineffective will be revealed. Dr. Neufeld will provide guidelines and strategies for addressing the roots of the aggression problem that will be applicable across ages and venues. This workshop has a broad application and is appropriate for teachers, psychologists, counselors, psychiatrists, social workers, family physicians, school principals, probation officers, foster parents, community nurses, therapists and family workers.
