Kids at Risk/Hope – In-Person Workshop
If the first five years of a child’s life sets the tone for the rest of their life, what happens when children are developing under stress? Kids at Hope is an invitation to better understand the complexities of early childhood development and how, as care providers, we can create barriers to reduce the impacts of stress and trauma which often present as challenging behaviours. This workshop will engage child care providers in learning about research such as the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES) and the social determinants of health. We will identify opportunities for hope even when early life starts with challenges and develop tools that are within the scope of practice and capability of child care providers.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
