Kathy Rudasill: INSIGHTS provides a window into child temperament
Kathy Rudasill, Ph.D.Professor of Educational Psychology, VCU
INSIGHTS is delivered to children during class time once a week for 10 weeks in kindergarten and first grade. Teachers use puppets and drama therapy techniques to teach children that while certain situations may be easy for some individuals, other situations may be more challenging. Children and their classmates engage the puppets in daily dilemmas to encourage empathy and strengthen their problem-solving skills.
