Children (ages 3-12) in a variety of settings sometimes struggle with issues, crises, or transitions. As helpers, we need to find ways to engage and support them and their natural support systems beyond simply talking. In this webinar, we explore the importance of attachment relationships, relevant emotional and cognitive development, and growing healthy brains for children. These form the backdrop working with strategies that emphasize the importance of sensory based activities, imagination and the role of play in helping children.
