Anger is considered to be an integral part of human nature, it has an evolutionary and adaptive significance and can be either useful and positive or harmful and negative. Understanding and managing anger is a difficult task for both parents and teachers because of the complex interaction of thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Anger and aggression are common reactions of children. As adults, we accept feelings and help children learn to channel and direct their anger to an effective end.
At this seminar we will first define the concept of anger by focusing on the ways in which it is expressed, as well as on the reasons or causes that may cause difficulties in controlling and managing the anger. Why do children express anger? What are the reasons of these emotions? This question will be the subject of a discussion and organizing a plan to “detect” this behavior.
The seminar is aimed at parents, teachers, kindergartens, teachers, pediatricians, pedagogical specialists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, pre-school and early childhood specialists.
The seminar will be conducted using methods and techniques such as lecture, discussion, group work, role playing and doll animation.
