You likely don’t need the leading pediatric organizations to officially declare the mental health crisis among kids a national emergency (but they have)—you are in the classroom with children every day. Concrete support from caring adults helps kids when they become overwhelmed by their own strong, uncomfortable feelings. While all human emotions can be normal and healthy, students who build emotional literacy skills are better equipped to learn in school, to deal with daily challenges, and to form healthy relationships with peers. Come learn more about the science of emotion and how educators can develop classroom routines and strategies that help kids name, normalize, and navigate big feelings.

This recorded edWebinar benefits teachers of PreK–6, school counselors, elementary school administrators, and teachers of students with special needs.
