Tiny Humans, Big Emotions: Parent and Caregiver Workshop

We are excited to bring emotional development expert Alyssa Campbell to Carpenter-Carse Library! This workshop is free, but we ask that you register by calling us (802-482-2878), emailing Jill, or stopping by the front desk.

About Alyssa’s program:

How do you respond to the tantruming child beyond validating their emotion and letting them express? Should we talk about every feeling? How do you really build a comfort in experiencing a feeling without getting trapped in it as we see in anxiety and depression? How do you build children’s coping strategies to last a lifetime, moving away from coping mechanisms? When is it time to problem solve? How do we know when it’s okay to just let something happen and move forward? Should we tell them how their actions make us feel to build empathy?

About Alyssa:

Alyssa has an M.Ed. in early childhood, is a leading expert in emotional development. She speaks to people around the world as the podcast host for Voices of Your Village in over 60 countries. She is the founder and CEO of Seed & Sew. Alyssa was featured an an emotional development expert in publications such as The Washington Post, Kids VT, and Family Education.

After co-creating the Collaborative Emotion Processing (CEP) method, she researched it across the U.S. and co-authored a book on it (coming in 2020). Alyssa is deeply passionate about
building emotional intelligence as young as infancy, stating, “It’s never too early or too late to start.” Alyssa’s show up as you are approach welcomes people into her village to get support at all ages and stages, shame free. Her company, Seed & Sew, serves people across the globe through speaking, consulting, and podcasting, with tools to live without anxiety, build their emotion processing toolbox, and raise emotionally intelligent humans.

Film: One Town at a Time

Vermont has 251 towns. Explore them…One Town at a Time.

In 2006, during a summer between semesters at college, director Mike Leonard took on the challenge of visiting every town in the state of Vermont by joining the 251 Club - a unique organization dedicated to exploring The Green Mountain State. With his two best friends in tow, he met with locals and visited some of Vermont’s most celebrated nooks and crannies. After living outside Vermont for over a decade, Mike moved back home and has chosen to revisit the 251 Club – returning to some of the same places and re-interviewing some of the same people he met 12 years ago – to learn about how Vermont has changed, how it has stayed the same, and how a humble wayfarer’s club has shaped his identity forever. 

One Town at a Time is a coming-of-age story that is firmly rooted in the community spirit that makes Vermont’s towns so special, including diverse voices from across the state such as Former Governor Jim Douglas and Ben & Jerry’s co-founder, Jerry Greenfield. You will hear from 251 Club members of all kinds and, after listening to their stories of traveling through Vermont, you’ll want to start exploring as well.

Donations appreciated.
