“Emotions are the relay stations between sensory input and thinking. When the input is interpreted positively, we are motivated to act and achieve a goal. When the input is interpreted negatively, we do not act and do not learn.” Ahmed Aider – Program facilitator, MNLCT
Imagine a world where you couldn’t understand when a family member was feeling sad or when your child was upset. Psychologists refer to this ability as emotional intelligence, and some experts even suggest that it can be more important than IQ.
Participants in our program learn more about what emotional intelligence is, how it promotes healthy relationships between parents and children, and how it helps children and youth recognize and express their feelings, develop self-motivation and perform better at school.
This program is offered to parents, children and youth in partnership with elementary and secondary schools.
