GORDON NEUFELD, PH.D.

Who's the Boss: Making Sense of Power Struggles

Jan. 22, 2015 • 7–9 p.m.
Town Hall, Seattle

Co-presented by the Seattle Neufeld Community.

A growing number of children are presenting as demanding, bossy and controlling. Developmental Psychologist and author Dr. Gordon Neufeld uncovers the roots of the problem — the alpha dynamic — and provides guidelines for lasting change.

Gordon Neufeld is a developmental psychologist who has spent the last 30 years forming a comprehensive theory of child development based on modern research and his own practice. His approach presents a new way of thinking about how children grow up and our responsibilities as parents.

Seattle Neufeld Community is a local chapter of the Neufeld Institute. They offer parents, educators, helping professionals and other caregivers educational activities that are designed to share knowledge of Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s insight into the developmental needs of children and strengthen them in their care-giving roles.
