How Tantrums Throw Toddlers

Not every theory that informs therapeutic practice makes it into mainstream media, but developmental psychologist Mona Delahooke’s nervous-system based approach to working with children has put her at the forefront of a radical paradigm shift in the way we approach parenting and schooling. Featured in The New Yorker, The Washington Post, and on NPR, she’s written two award-winning books—Brain-Body Parenting and Beyond Behaviors—and has advised countless parents, teachers, and clinicians on how to manage behaviors from a body-up perspective. In this address, she’ll illustrate the damage caused by diagnoses and behavior plans that don’t take the whole child into account, and she’ll lay the foundation for a paradigm shift in child development and therapy.

Please note this event will hold a simulcast for virtual attendees at the cost of $20.00.

Mona M. Delahooke, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who’s worked with multidisciplinary teams for over 30 years. A senior faculty member of the Profectum Foundation, she’s the author of the bestseller Brain-Body Parenting, How to Stop Managing Behaviors and Start Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids, and the award-winning Beyond Behaviors: Using Brain Science and Compassion to Understand and Solve Children’s Behavioral Challenges.
