Special Notice: This session is open only to educators participating in the Regional Education Consortium. School Division ID required at check in. Pre-registration required.
Mental health in young children is closely related to their social and emotional development because it includes how they feel about themselves and other people, how they approach problems and challenges, and how they cope with life. Good mental health helps people handle stress, make wise decisions, and get along with others in childhood, and throughout adulthood. However, experiences that children encounter can create stressful reminders that may be detrimental to their mental health. Experiences that persist or get worse over time can be toxic stressors that overwhelm children and make them especially vulnerable to mental health problems. This training session will provide an overview of how traumatic stressors can negatively impact a child’s social, emotional, and physical development and lead to problematic behaviors in the classroom, and how educational professionals, school administrators, and school resource officers can be more sensitive to a child’s individual needs.
