Later this month, Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is hosting the sixth, and final, talk in their Growing Up Human series: The Development of Emotions
“What happens when children and adolescents want to change their emotions? What do they do to achieve this? And is there a right way to change emotions in childhood and adolescence?” KFPL asked in a media release.
In this talk in the Growing Up Human series, Megan Wylie, MSc. covers emotion regulation across childhood and adolescence, according to the release.
KFPL said that Wylie will discuss how emotions shift in the first decades of life, during the online program, which will be held over Zoom at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 27, 2022. Register online at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/6380034.
“Emotional management in early life can be critical to psychological development and mental health,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Having Megan discuss this complex process will bring a deeper understanding to something that no caregiver can afford to ignore.”
Growing Up Human is presented by the Child and Adolescent Development Group at Queen’s University.
