Hosted by The Wishing Star Developmental Clinic at Eaton Arrowsmith School White Rock Campus

Proudly presenting a 6-part workshop series: Through the Child’s Eyes with Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, R. Psych.

This series is specially created for every “big person” out there – moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, caregivers, teachers – who are growing up young children 0-8 years of age. Created and delivered by Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, Registered Psychologist and experienced, dynamic speaker, the six workshops in this series are meant to stir in each participant the wonder of seeing the world Through the Child’s Eyes. Dr. Lapointe firmly believes that if each of us big people can find ourselves looking out at the world, experiencing and knowing the world, and feeling and responding to the world the way a child does, we are infinitely more capable of responding to children in ways that resonate with the science of development. That is, to do right by our children we need to see the world through their eyes.

Although this series will be sequentially presented in a manner that allows each workshop to build upon the content of previous workshops, each workshop is also “stand-alone” and does not require participation in the previous workshops.

The Series

We are thrilled to present the third of six workshops in our 2012/2013 launch of the “Through the Child’s Eyes” series:

Part 3 of a 6 Part Series: Through the Child’s Eyes: Knowing & Trusting

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

The treasure of knowing that you are “being held in mind” brings with it an incredible amount of trust for the young child in their big person. Imagine knowing that your big person so understood you, so cared for you, so had your back, and so wanted to do right by you that you could just sit back, relax, and trust your development to unfold in the manner nature intended! This is what we want for our growing children. We don’t want young children to have to up the ante to have their developmental needs met. This leads to unnecessary challenges and a foundational disruption for the child who is simply trying to grow up. How then do we instill in our children that sense that they are being held in mind? Knowing and Trusting is a workshop that offers big people different ways to think about and approach gifting a child the treasure of being known and of “being held in mind.” This will include understanding key concepts foundational to the relationship between the child and their special big people, as well as a year-by-year developmental understanding from birth through 8 of how a child’s special big people can connect with them in meaningful ways.
