Tears and Tantrums: Understanding Frustration & Aggression

4—5:30 PM

Cost: $5 entrance, minimum 5 partipants


Come to Bowen Island Yoga to participate in a webinar with counsellor and educator, Dr. Deborah McNamara. (If you can't come to the studio, you can register for the webinar directly through the Neufeld Institute here). 

Children and teens' expressions of frustration and aggression can take on many forms, including temper tantrums and various forms of attack. Part of making headway requires understanding the roots of frustration and aggression and how to deal with the resulting behaviours. This presentation will focus on strategies for dealing with a frustrated child while preserving one's relationship to them. It will address the importance of setting limits and helping children learn they can survive the futilities that are part of life.
