The Importance of Social-Emotional Wellness for Adults Now and Always
Thursday, September 24, 2020 / 2:30 pm to 3:45 pm (CT)
Understanding yourself is an important first step to working with others. Teachers’ peace and resiliency is important to the daily work with students and their families—now and always. This session will help educators take a deep look within themselves, recognize signs of adverse childhood experiences, and get resources and strategies to support their own personal health and wellness as well as that of students and families during the pandemic. Melissa Williamson, Ed.D., a professional development consultant, will lead this session developed for the Mississippi educators who teach children from birth to age 8.
Please watch this Ted Talk on childhood trauma and health effects with Nadine Burke Harris, MD, prior to the training session.
