One of the biggest challenges early childhood educators face is how to help children develop social-emotional skills and resiliency. This unique session will show teachers and administrators how to combine common sense and systematic methods to create a community environment where children, parents, teachers and administrators thrive. It will provide an action strategy, including simple planning tools, that helps families, teachers and administrators become engaged, connected, and aware of how they are doing. Based on the work of Dr. Gerald Newmark, and his best-selling book, How To Raise Emotionally Healthy Children, this webinar will explore the five critical emotional needs that all people have from birth on—the need to feel respected, important, accepted, included and secure.
Satisfying the five critical needs of all people, provides a foundation for success in school, career, relationships, marriage, physical health, and life in general. Children who are raised in emotionally healthy surroundings will be more likely to grow up to be independent, reliable, self-confident, thinking, civic-minded, and caring individuals.
Dr. Newmark will also describe the success of The Children’s Project, a grass-roots, non-profit organization has had working with schools to provide strategies and programs to help them meet the five basic needs with methods that are easy to understand and use by everybody.Session Slides: Download
