Taming the Worry Monster: Helping Your Child Deal With Stress and Anxiety
Dr. Peters describes a model for overcoming anxiety by understanding how the “Worry Monster” tricks children (and adults) into being scared. For both children and adults, viewers will learn about how the fear response works in our bodies, how our thoughts determine our emotions, and how changing our thoughts and facing our fears, will help us lead worry-free and more satisfying lives.
The Characteristics of Gifted Learners
Dr. Peters describes the characteristics of gifted learners and the factors that can influence or hinder their development. Viewers will learn risk factors that gifted children face, potential misdiagnoses, what it means to be twice-exceptional (2e), and how to nurture a gifted child’s growth – helping them to maximize their developmental potential.
DVDs are available for $30 each from Summit Center. $55 if purchased together. Call or email to order.
