Two San Diego State Child and Family Development faculty members will be hosting an online webinar in which experts will provide their best information-gathering techniques during the study of young children.

Titled “Supporting Young Children’s Behavior: The Hourglass Model,” the webinar is designed to show teachers and parents of younger children how exactly to discern certain behavioral and emotional traits from their individual actions. The webinar will be held October 13th, with presenters Dr. Shulamit Ritblatt and Chris Muecke. Dr. Ritblatt sits as the current chair of the Child and Family Development Department while Muecke is a retired parent/infant educator and lecturer at SDSU.

The Hourglass Model was developed to assist teachers and parents in their study of children from early childhood, or zero to five years of age. The model can guide early childhood professionals in the processes of observing, gathering information, and learning about each one of the children in their group.

The model is meant to support regulation of emotions and behaviors and meet the specific needs of children in large group, small group, or one-on-one settings. Through the learning and use of this model, those who sign up for the webinar will be better equipped in the many diverse strategies of interacting with children in order to learn more on a behavioral and emotional level.

The program also aims to make these different strategies of study more accessible to those in the field of Child and Family Development. With many types of comprehensive techniques in the area of behavioral studies, webinars such as this are vital in the sharing of ideas.

If you wish to attend this informative webinar, please see registration details below.  Registration to the webinar is free of charge.
