Learning how to cope with adversity is an important part of healthy child development. Without an environment of supportive relationships, toxic stress can have a cumulative toll on a child’s mental health, physical wellbeing, and overall development. As early childhood providers, we are often the first line of defense for young children. This symposium is geared for all teachers working with young children.
Crafting and Facilitating Resilience in Children Dr. Nikki Massey-Hastings, PsyD, LCD
Practical strategies will be presented for building the architecture of self-esteem and resilience in young children.
Toxic Anxiety in Children Dr. Matthew Hefferon, PsyD, MA
A general overview of the effects of toxic anxiety (including the effects of trauma, abuse, neglect, and aggregate anxiety over time) will be presented. Case examples will be shared for discussion. Further areas explored will include neurological and psychological effects for adults who have experienced toxic anxiety. Treatment options and approaches will be shared.
