About the Webinar:
On any given day, children and teens experience a wide range of emotions and we are often left trying to determine how best to support them. In today’s challenging times, it seems harder to know how to respond to the big feelings and the silent feelings. Learn how to understand the brain states to form a better response in the moment and discover tools for managing emotional self regulation.
