Lifespan Speaker Series – Power Dynamics in Early Childhood

Early childhood is a period of rapid development – particularly regarding social-cognitive skills. One important aspect of social-cognitive development is power, which can be used to influence others and varies by social situation. 

This free webinar explored various aspects of power in early childhood, focusing on:

  • Age differences in the use of power
  • How power is expressed in different environments and relationships
  • How parents/caregivers and educators can recognize and engage in positive power dynamics within home and learning environments
