Social and Emotional Development – Webinar
March 29 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm MST
Many studies have been completed which support the idea that social-emotional learning yields results including developing positive relationships, improved behaviors, and increased academic success. The soft skills children develop through social-emotional learning will impact their employability and relationships developed for a lifetime. Therapists who have a better understanding of social- emotional development throughout childhood will help their clients to develop the groundwork to maximize their potential for the rest of their lives. This course will provide an over view of social-emotional development from birth through adolescence. Case studies will be used to provide the opportunity to apply knowledge learned to support the development of appropriate therapeutic interventions for children. Therapists will leave this course with a better understanding of social-emotional development to integrate into treatment planning when working with children ages birth through adolescence.
