This workshop will explore social-emotional learning, mindful practice and ways in which educators can support children’s social and emotional well-being by applying the HighScope Educational Research Foundation’s approach to problem-solving and conflict resolution. Participants will review the cycle of emotions in the brain and will be able to identify the 6 steps of conflict resolution that can be used with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children to support them through powerful emotions and into constructive problem-solving. In our discussions, participants will be invited to brainstorm about common issues that they are experiencing in their own classrooms, including how to work through philosophical differences among educators and the impact that these differences have on the children with whom we work and the organizational climate.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
