This Thursday – Come Hear Dr Norman Shub Talk about Children and Self Esteem – No Cost

All are welcome to Our Columbus Montessori Education Center Parent Education Night on January 12, 2012 which will  feature nationally known Norman Shub from the Gestalt Institute of Central Ohio where he is the Director of Training.

The session will focus on “Developing Your Child’s Self-Esteem”

From the Gestalt Institute Site

Today, children and families are experiencing higher levels of anxiety and stress. As a result, children are experiencing depression, confusion, frustration, loss, acting out, alcohol/drug abuse, and violence.

The school is often the environment in which the child expresses his/her feelings. This leaves educators struggling with ways to balance the educational and emotional needs of their students.

Gestalt Associates recognizes the challenges facing school professionals. Our team of highly trained, caring professionals is committed to forming a partnership with schools to support, join, and develop effective treatment strategies unique to each family.

Our model is based on creating an atmosphere of safety and respect, which allows honest evaluation of one’s choices and personal responsibilities.

The Needs of the Child

  • A safe and confidential atmosphere to fully experience his or her life
  • A trusting, supportive relationship that promotes understanding of experiences, feelings, needs and the impact of his or her behavior on other people and situations

The Role of the Family

  • Involving the family system is paramount to treatment
  • Helping family members understand how their behavior affects each other, what promotes change, and how to support the growth of the child and the family as a whole

Team Oriented Approach

  • Define and implement the most effective treatment strategies
  • Ongoing staff meetings promote communication, evaluation and refinement of treatment goals
  • Develop partnerships with schools. Case management services link the support and communication essential to growth of the child and family.
