Description: Noted child psychiatrist Leon Hoffman, M.D., will discuss how these control mechanisms, which help us resist impulses, modulate behavior, plan, and understand the consequences of behavior, are affected by children's development and emotional states. He will offer suggestions on how adults can help to foster executive functioning in children.
