Raising Resilience: Infusing Resilience Into our Work with Young Children (Fall Webinar Series 2019)
Dec 4 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Zoom Cloud Meeting Platform
This is the fourth and final webinar in our 2019 fall webinar series entitled Minding the Milestones: Development and Resilience in Young Children.
In our work with young children, we have many opportunities to build resilience. Building solid relationships is one of key ways that parents, caregivers, and professionals can help children cope with stress in their lives while building a sense of mastery. This webinar will discuss the basics of building resilience. It will also give some practical ways to infuse this research into our caring for and working with children.
