Young people are dealing with a lot right now. From the ongoing impact of the pandemic to stressors ranging from peer pressure and bullying to economic hardship, divorce, community violence, and the death of a loved one. As many as 25% of children and adolescents worldwide experience anxiety and depression.* This stress can affect a student’s cognitive abilities and behavior in the classroom.

As educators, you are on the front lines of helping children navigate adverse conditions and hard moments so that they are able to learn. During this edWebinar, we provide actionable social-emotional learning strategies to help students develop resilience. Tune in to:

  • Explore what’s happening in the brain and body when students, families, and staff experience stress and the effect of this response on learning and daily functioning
  • Learn strategies to promote student self-regulation in school and at home
  • Discover ways to integrate self-regulation strategies as part of a culture of care in school
  • Gain insight into how to encourage students and families to practice regulation strategies at home

Watch for a powerful hour that empowers you to help students build the skills they need to cope in the face of challenging circumstances. This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-8 teachers, school and district leaders, and school counselors.
