A Family Center "Ask the Experts" presentation with Bart Bronk, Head of University Liggett School.

A child's emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to accurately identify emotions and adroitly navigate emotion-governed interactions. A substantial and growing body of research suggests that a child's EQ strongly predicts success in a number of life areas, notably including school. Learn what every parent should know about the "anchor" EQ disposition of empathy, the ability to feel with another, and its development, expression, and viability in the digital age. This video will give you a renewed commitment to carefully tend to the empathic lives of children and to employ empathic responses to strengthen relationships.

Presented at University Liggett School on February 13, 2018.
