We all have our own way of adapting and responding to the world around us. Are you distractible or persistent, sensitive or easy going? These characteristics describe temperament. During this workshop, we will learn about nine temperament traits and three large categories used to describe most infants and toddlers. Strategies on how to care for children based on their temperament type will be shared. We will also discuss the “goodness of fit” between your own temperament and the infants and toddlers in your care and explore the role of culture as it relates to temperament. By understanding temperament, caregivers can provide the supports needed to help every infant and toddler feel safe and secure in the child care setting. This training provides information that supports the ITERS-R subscales: Space and Furnishings, Listening and Talking and Interactions and Program Structure. (DCDEE 2, 3, 4, 8)
