About the event
One of the greatest obstacles in creating an emotionally responsive classroom/school environment for young children isn't a lack of information or strategy; it is having a deep understanding of how our personal values, beliefs, perspectives and biases can hinder our ability to be emotionally responsive to children's individual needs, particularly children who have experienced trauma. Join us as we explore many common beliefs and practices that come from our own childhood experiences that influence the lens we see children through and begin the practice of self-awareness as the first step in developing authentic relationships with young children-relationships that truly support children's lifelong resiliency.
