Temperament is present at birth and the class is built around the first two years of development. However, temperament remains over time, so the concept can be used for every age because it describes the behavioral style of the individual. It's helpful in understanding the interaction of couples, with other family members and between parents and children, even in the workplace with co-workers. So the concepts of the class can be applied to any age.
This is a wonderful chance to learn from one of the rare astrological experts in this field! Based on a lifetime of work in the fields of astrology and child development, Cornelia has developed a new approach to looking at temperament using modern child development concepts.
- What are temperamental "types"?
- What are their characteristics?
- What parenting strategies will effectively meet the child's individual needs?
- How does the astrologer counsel parents in a way that promotes positive developmental progress?
This course will answer these questions and many more. It is designed to help the astrologer to understand where there is or is not a good fit between the child and his/her physical and social environment and what that entails.
"...Parents ask astrologers to read their children's chart. How can we provide helpful insight without delving too deep into predictive language that might cause undue concern? That's what your class helped me do! Temperament provides a safe terrain to assist parents in better understanding their children. At least that's what it helped me do." R.B. Fall 2017
