The Life is Good Playmaker Project
Sponsored by Life is Good Playmaker Project.
Optimism is powerful. When human beings strengthen their ability to see and focus on the goodness and value in themselves, others, and the world around them, their social, emotional and cognitive superpowers emerge. Optimism, however, is fragile. Chronic stress, fear and overwhelming adversity can weaken and destroy our capacity for optimism. This inspiring presentation by Steve Gross, helps Early Childhood Professionals discover the power of optimism to create safe, loving, joyful, and engaging environments where kids can heal, grow and thrive. Using research, humor and personal stories from 30+ years of work with kids and their caretakers Steve Gross will share how practicing optimism can bring out the best in ourselves, our colleagues and our children.
- Discover the power of optimism and play and how you can use them to create healing, life- changing relationships with the children in your care.
- Learn the Playmaker framework and approach to create correct, optimal environments for kids to heal, learn, grow and thrive.
- Understand the importance of developing a personal wellness practice to be able to bring your most optimistic human disposition into your work – because we can’t spread what we don’t have!
