Present day public schools focus intensely on academic success. Social-emotional development is frequently given only incidental attention. If families are not prepared to take up the slack, students’ emotional growth may be impeded, resulting in diminished social skills, motivation, and ability to cope with stress.
Dr. Liane Brouillette gives parents effective strategies that can help their children to build a strong foundation in six key areas:
- Developing confidence
- Building human connections and a feeling of belonging
- Learning from consequences
- Nurturing emotional intelligence
- Acquiring a sense of agency
- Making wise decisions
Liane Brouillette has a passion for helping families prepare children to thrive in school and out. She has taught at the pre-university level in both Europe and the United States. Currently, Dr. Brouillette is an associate professor of educational policy at the University of California, Irvine and Director of the UCI Center for Learning in the Arts, Sciences and Sustainability. She also serves as managing editor of the Journal for Learning through the Arts.
