Parent Education Evening – Cornell MPR;Wednesday, January 18, 2017, at 7:00 pm "The Dynamics of Status Among School-Age Children" with Patricia Contaxis, MFT.
Civility in public discourse is currently a hot topic. School-age children are developmentally ripe to learn the rules and ways to maintain a civil society. Toward this end, teachers and parents are perfectly situated to teach, encourage, remind and correct the children in their care. In tonight’s talk, Patricia Contaxis, MFT, will explain how children jockey for status, the actual behaviors that they employ to raise and lower their own status and the status of those around them, and how parents and teachers can intervene to correct any adverse effects of these social behaviors. While we will be focusing on children, these behaviors are used throughout the life-cycle and tonight’s talk will also be relevant to adult interactions.
