Relationship-Based Care & Supporting Childhood Transitions

Transitions such as starting or leaving child care, moving, welcoming a new sibling or saying goodbye permanently to a loved one can happen at any time in a child’s life. Relationships are essential for easing these transitions and helping children thrive. Building relationships with families help open the lines of communication that ultimately benefit children. Relationships are also essential for creating environments where infants, toddlers and children feel safe to learn and grow when faced with challenging life transitions. In this workshop participants will:
Review attachment theory, primary caregiving and supporting childhood mental health
Talk about life transitions that happen in childhood and discuss how these transitions may impact children (behaviour and development).
Think about relationship-based strategies to support children and families through challenging transitions including the transition to kindergarten.
