THE BELMONT HILLS LIBRARY’S SEMINAR SERIES IS PROUD TO PRESENT GUEST SPEAKER CARRIE SPAULDING
“Getting Stronger Every Day: Building Resilience in Children”
How do we teach children to face challenges and take good care of themselves in the process? In this seminar, you’ll learn how to provide children with the tools, experiences, and scaffolding they need to build resilience. You’ll learn to help children recognize, identify, and communicate their emotions, and you’ll get concrete tools, strategies, and language to help children self-soothe and manage their intense feelings. We’ll discuss the power of interpretation and parent/teacher language in supporting a struggling child’s self-image. Discover the power of resilience models and mentors, and how (and why) to help children set resilience goals. You’ll also get tips for working with highly emotional, expressive, and sensitive children.
EVERY PARENT SHOULD ATTEND THIS SEMINAR!
