2018 Fall Webinar Series: Responsive Relationships: High Quality Parent and Child Interactions


This is the third live webinar of our 2018 Fall Webinar series entitled Building Blocks for Babies: Quality Assessments Lead to Better Early Childhood Mental Health.

Parents can offer their children rich, high quality interactions that show positive behavioral outcomes, support emotional repair and develop cognitive functioning. In this webinar, we will explore the importance of high quality parent-child engagement and social-emotional development in the early years. The hour-long session will focus on what to look for in parent-child interactions as well as how to better interpret the reciprocity of the relationship.
