Book Study and Discussion Group

This group will meet for five consecutive weeks to discuss the top-rated book by Deborah MacNamara:

Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers (Or Anyone Who Acts Like One)

Based on the work of developmental psychologist Gordon Neufeld 

Facilitated by Catherine Korah and Isabel Melo

Dates: November 16, 23, 30, December 7 and 14, 2017
Time:  1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. 
Fee:  $200 (includes one paperback copy of the book) 
Address:  479 Saint-Joseph Blvd E., Montreal

Each session will cover a theme from this brilliant book, which according to one reviewer is 'developmental science translated into practical love'. 

Although the focus will be on toddlers and pre-schoolers, the material is relevant to children of all ages. The approach is attachment-based and rooted in developmental science.

Attachment is not just about baby bonding!  It enables children of all ages -- and adults -- to reach their full potential.

Making Sense of Preschoolers

A video-course and discussion group

Location479 Saint-Joseph Blvd E., Montreal (just east of Saint-Denis, across from Laurier Metro)

This six-week course explains what every child needs us to know about them.

From the DVD jacket:
"No one is more susceptible to being misunderstood than the preschooler. Precocious, brazen, obsessive, endearing, hysterical, impulsive, anxious, delightful, unreflective, dogmatic, generous, unstable, aggressive, resistant, compulsive and anything but consistent. The preschooler could qualify for any number of personality and behaviour disorders. Unlike infants and toddlers, preschoolers actually bear a resemblance to grown-ups and therefore fool us into thinking they are much more like us than they really are. Projecting adult psychology onto them is a typical mistake."

The course will provide insight into your preschooler's:

  • shyness
  • separation anxieties
  • aggression
  • resistance
  • oppositionality
  • and more!

To make sense of a preschooler is to possess the keys for unlocking the mysteries of human nature and for the unfolding of human potential. This course is designed for all those involved with 2- to 5-year-olds: parents, grandparents, daycare providers and early childhood educators.  Please note that this course is for adults only. The site is not set up for children.
