What will you learn? Designed by play therapists, this professional development class assists teachers, early-childhood educators and caregivers in learning how to support the nurturing of social emotional development in a group and classroom setting. We introduce teachers and early childhood educators to a fresh perspective on why children are feeling and acting the way they are. You’ll have many “A-ha” moments as we explore the relationship between brain development, perception, nervous system regulation and their impact on a child as an individual and in a group. This class meets the 3 clock hour requirement for social emotional development from Colorado Shines.
- Participants will be able to identify how the brain processes information, activates the different states of the nervous system and the impact this has on children’s behaviors;
- Participants will understand the role they play in teaching children self-regulation;
- Participants will learn how the environment contributes to a child’s ability to self-regulate.
