Laughlin Psychologist Presents on Temperament

Licensed psychologist Lenore Melmeyer, PhD, will offer two sessions aimed at providing parents with strategies on finessing the difficulties that differences in temperament can sometimes cause among siblings or between a parent and child.

Learn how each person’s individual temperament affects all sorts of behaviors, from how active we are, to our moods, to our sensitivity threshold. Dr. Melmeyer will speak about the difficulties that can arise when a child’s temperament clashes with the temperaments of other family members, as well as the ways to deal with those difficulties using a variety of real-life strategies. She will close with a question-and-answer session.

Dr. Melmeyer’s overview and Q&A sessions are free and open to the public, and will occur at Laughlin Children’s Center, 424 Frederick Avenue, in Sewickley, on the following dates:

Wednesday, October 17th from 7 pm to 8 pm (free childcare available at this session)

Thursday, October 25th from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

The workshops are appropriate for parents or caregivers of children from toddler age through high school. For more information or to reserve a spot in either session, please call the Center at 412.741.4087 or email k.miller@laughlincenter.org.
