Understanding Temperament*

Mar 7, 2016

In this session participants will define temperament and temperament characteristics, and explore the link between temperament and "goodness of fit."

A child’s temperament influences not only his or her style of interaction but the very way in which he or she understands and experiences the world and the people in it. Understanding the role of this critical area of development helps staff form positive relationships with children and support parents in doing the same. In this session participants will define temperament and temperament characteristics, explore the link between temperament and “goodness of fit,” and understand how each aspect of temperament can be viewed as both a risk and protective factor.

Our topic experts are available for onsite sessions, webinars, and keynotes and presentations at conferences.
