Voice Lessons for Parents & Caregivers — What to Say, When to Say It & How to Listen: Thursday, September 28, 2023, 7:30–8:30pm
Most parents are adept and savvy communicators, even when mild tensions arise in relationships — until they are talking to their children. Addressing this growing challenge for families, Dr. Mogel developed a series of specific “voice lessons” for parents. Using humor and act outs she’ll share how a shift in vocal style, verbal content, and timing will lead children to listen more attentively, communicate with more enthusiasm, respect, and sincerity, and cooperate with more alacrity. She’ll reveal how each age and stage of a child’s life brings novel opportunities to connect. And the heartening news is that parents can model and teach the foundational skills of communication starting at birth… or anytime beyond. Participants will leave with specific skills and strategies to use with children of diverse temperaments and across the span of childhood and adolescence. The recording of this webinar will be available until December 31, 2023.
Meet the Presenter: Wendy Mogel, PhD is a practicing social-clinical psychologist, international public speaker, and New York Times bestselling author. Her parenting books include The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, The Blessing of a B Minus, and Voice Lessons for Parents.
