Raising Resilient Children – Strategies and Support for Parents
This creative workshop in social and emotional learning (SEL) is designed for parents, grandparents, guardians, caregivers, and teachers of young children. We will offer strategies for establishing a strong foundation of emotional intelligence from infancy and through the toddler years.
The objectives of this SEL workshop:
1) To improve communication with your child.
2) To makes teaching and learning more effective.
3) To better prepares a child for a life of success in an ever-changing world.
Books and conversations provide children a rich language of words they can use in expressing their own thoughts and feelings. Using The Angel Heart as a springboard, we will discuss the importance of language and literacy in opening up a variety of channels of expression – verbal, physical, and creative – that will help children learn to manage their emotions and their relationships with others, and help them navigate the challenges presented throughout life.
This workshop is presented by Wendy Fachon and Gail Ahlers of The Empowerment Factory.
