Description of each workshop

Masterclass with Imelda Madigan

Supporting Emotional and Social Development through the use of Conflict Resolution

There is a growing awareness of the importance of supporting emotional and social development in the young child. This awareness supports the belief that social and emotional development is equally, if not more important than early academics, in determining school readiness. A solid foundation in these content areas affect not only whether the young child succeeds in school but also affects whether they grow up to have a rewarding and successful personal and work life.

The ability to resolve conflicts is hugely dependent on children’s social and emotional abilities. To help children resolve social conflicts when they do occur educators need support in the 6-step problem solving approach to conflict resolution (detailed in Evans, 2002)

Those who attend this seminar will discuss and experience these steps to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of the support that is needed to affect change.
