Denise Daniels is a Peabody Award-winning broadcast journalist, author, and parenting and child development expert who specializes in the social and emotional development of children. Denise has reported to the United Nations on issues impacting children in Africa and to Congress on issues impacting children stateside as well as advising on children's grief issues for PSAs developed for former First Lady Laura Bush. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Southeast Asia, Denise served in areas identified by the U.S. Department of State to help affected children cope with their unimaginable losses.
Denise's experience traveling the globe led her to develop the innovative First Aid for Feelings program developed for Pfizer Pediatrics used in over 200 pediatric units across the country. The program has also been integrated into the training program at ten U.S. medical schools and used as part of the grief support program for children at Ground Zero after 9/11. The program also proved essential in the creation of The Moodsters and understanding of what children need to develop emotionally.
Denise recently partnered with Scholastic Publishing and the Yale Child Study Center, Collaborative for Child Resilience, to create First Aid for Families: Helping Kids Cope During the Corona Pandemic, a free public service available at www.Scholastic.com.
