Children Have Stress Too
Learning to handle stress is an important life skill for everyone. Developed by the Psychology Foundation of Canada, this training teaches educators to help children enhance their physical, mental, emotional and behavioural coping skills, thinking styles and key abilities during the important window of opportunity of the early years. By providing participants with more information, tools and strategies, this training will help them learn effective ways to promote positive emotional development and self-regulation in young children, and create a learning environment that reduces stress and supports children by helping them to begin to effectively cope with stress.
