Special Preschool Training with Ariel Wrye – CANCELLED

Working with young children is an incredibly important job. This special workshop offers critical information about the brain, trauma, and strategies to promote social and emotional growth. It also offers early childhood professionals opportunities to reflect on their practice and build the safe, stable nurturing connections children need to thrive.

Some things you will learn:
* How empathy creates an optimal environment for learning and growth.
* Strategies to address classroom challenges that don’t disrupt the relationship or a child’s sense of safety.
* Information about the brain, trauma and regulation to help make sense of and respond most effectively to children’s behavior.

We want to support the hard working providers who offer loving care to children and families every day.
