Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child by John M. Gottman & Julie Schwartz Gottman
Researchers have found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and ability to handle feelings will determine your success and happiness in all walks of life, including family relationships. Good parenting begins in the heart, and then continues on a moment-to-moment basis by engaging children when feelings run high, when they are sad, angry, or scared. The heart of parenting or working with children in a clinical setting is being there in a particular way when it really counts. This talk explains how to teach children to understand and regulate their emotional world. Throughout this talk, the Gottmans explain to listeners the five-steps of the “emotion coaching” process. This talk is based upon Dr. Gottman’s globally influential book, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child: The Heart of Parenting.
- Become aware of a child’s smaller emotions so they don’t have to escalate
- Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching
- Listen empathetically and validate a child’s feelings
- Label emotions in words a child can understand
- Help a child come up with an appropriate way to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting issue or situation

Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
