I-LABS Module 5 – Understanding Emotions (eLearning)
All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The team at I-LABS creates new and effective ways to bridge the gap between the science and the practice of learning by disseminating the latest science of child development. Our team shares the latest scientific discoveries in relevant and actionable ways with those who can best put it into practice: early learning professionals, parents, and policymakers. Partners use cutting-edge research to create evidence-based policies, practices, and programs that grow the next generation of lifelong learners.
This 20-minute Online module covers the following points:
-Children take cues from other people to guide their emotions and behavior, especially in new situations (social referencing).
-Children even learn from interactions they’re not directly involved in – they pick up on emotional states of others just from watching and listening.
-In their second year of life, children begin managing their own emotions or behaviors (self-regulation), often using others’ reactions to guide their actions.
