In this latest podcast, Regina Staves, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology at Avila University in Kansas City, speaks with CTF Executive Director Kirk Schreiber about the importance of developing and promoting emotional well-being in children. Dr. Staves discusses what emotional well-being looks like, positive role modeling and tips for parents on how they can promote positive emotional development in their child’s life.

As part of its Words Hurt, But They Also Help campaign, CTF has developed a new flier (PDF) for caretakers that promote emotional well-being in children. The flier also provides information about emotional abuse/neglect, also known as psychological maltreatment, and how these hurtful and harmful behaviors can have long-lasting effects.
