1 in 3 children experience a form of life-threatening adversity such as homelessness, abuse, or violence. Research shows that a positive relationship with just one caring adult in early childhood can change that child’s life entirely. Early childhood educators are in a prime position to establish strong positive relationships to support young children before, during, and after critical experiences.
Join this webinar, hosted by Early Learning Investigations, to learn from clinical social worker and founder of The Playmaker Project, Steve Gross, MSW, to learn how to build relationships with children to overcome the impacts of early childhood adversity.
The Playmaker Project team has boiled down more than 30 years of field experience into a 4-step framework for building corrective play experiences that help early childhood professionals develop healing relationships with children. In this virtual event, participants will explore ways to enhance joyfulness, social connection, internal control, and active engagement in your work with young children.
