This is a 4 part series in which Kathryn Shea, LCSW will cover the critical elements of the Seven Essential Life Skills. In 2000, Mind In The Making (MITM) founder Ellen Galinsky began a research journey fueled by a question: how to keep the fire for learning — which every child is born with — lighting up the eyes of children? To answer the question, she reviewed more than 2,000 studies and conducted in-depth interviews with and filmed more than 130 leading researchers who study children’s development and learning. From what she learned, Galinsky developed a framework of the 7 Essential Life Skills. The work grew into MITM, a national movement to share scientifically based research and strategies for promoting Life Skills, reaching millions of people in communities across the country, and counting. This 8 -hour presentation will focus on understanding the seven essential life skills and ways to implement them in your every day lives. The seven essential life skills are all pathways to our executive functioning skills and all are necessary for children’s successes in life and in school.

The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs are 1. Focus and Self Control, 2. Perspective Taking, 3. Communicating, 4. Making Connections, 5. Critical Thinking, 6. Taking on Challenges, and 7. Self-directed, Engaged Learning
