Building Resilience in Youth – Outreach Wellness Learning webinar
May 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Brought to us by Mental Health America of Georgia, this webinar is geared toward anyone working with children or youth.
While a child is developing, their social-emotional development is just as important as their physical growth. Social-emotional development is a child’s ability to understand the feelings of others, control their own feelings, and get along with peers. At any point that their development is hindered through trauma or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the child can experience difficulty with their emotional responses as they grow into adulthood. Teaching youth how to be resilient will provide them the tools to adapt well while facing adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or any additional significant sources of stress.
Through this training participants will: 1
. Describe mental health and social emotional development.
2. Identify ways to build and strengthen resilience in children.
3. Demonstrate self-care practices to maintain mental wellness.
