Dr. Goleman's talk
Dr. Goleman’s talk will focus on new insights into the brain and emotional intelligence. He will address the social and emotional circuitry of the brain from age four to adult. He will address key developmental stages and what children, youth and adults need to learn at each stage. He will also discuss how curricula in social-emotional learning may use developmental science to design lessons for students that focus on enhancing those developmental needs and will discuss such programs in terms of neuroplasticity.  Dr. Goleman will answer questions from the audience. The event will be followed by a book signing and book sale in the lower lobby.
