Psychologist Kennedy-Moore Speaks on Skills Kids Need

Author, psychologist, and mother of four Eileen Kennedy-Moore will give a talk October 10 at Princeton Public Library. Called “The Social Curriculum: Five People Skills Every Child Needs to Learn,” the session will be at 7 p.m. in the library’s Community Room.

Ms. Kennedy-Moore will describe five essential people skills that are part of the unspoken social curriculum for school-age children during the talk, which is part of the library’s “Inside a Child’s Mind” speaker series. She will also offer parents practical ideas for helping children feel more comfortable and confident in social situations.

Ms. Kennedy-Moore has published books for parents, children, and mental health professionals and has been quoted in dozens of national and regional magazines and newspapers. She has a private practice in Princeton.
