About the speaker
Nelly Tong, PhD
Dr. Tong is leading a funded project focusing on training parents of lower SES to become their kid's emotion coach. Dr. Tong and her colleagues modified John Gottman’s emotion coaching model by further incorporating mindfulness-based strategies. Parents generally found the program to be effective in attending to needs of their own as well as their kids.
In addition, Dr. Tong is also developing a mindfulness-based social-emotional learning curriculum for preschools and had conducted a research study to validate the effectiveness of the curriculum. Initial findings showed that the curriculum was effective in enhancing preschooler's emotion regulation skills.
